The Canada Summer Jobs Program is one of the initiatives from the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy. The program provides funding for non-profit organizations, public-sector employers (including most UBC faculties and departments), and private small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer jobs for full-time students.
