CPRA’s Green Jobs Initiative – Applications due August 10, 2018
August 2, 2018
The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA), through Government of Canada funding, has created a “green jobs” program for youth. The Green Jobs Initiative, will provide direct financial support (via wage subsidies) to municipalities, Indigenous communities and other sector organizations, allowing them to offer new summer job positions that focus on green career-related activities.
The goals of the Green Jobs Initiative are to:
- Create meaningful job experiences for youth
- Build a generation of youth that will value nature close to home and potentially pursue an opportunity to build a career in the green job sector
- Generate much needed support to municipalities, Indigenous communities and other sector organizations to hire additional youth to advance their green priorities
If you’re hiring students this fall 2018 and winter 2019, apply for the Green Jobs Initiative.
Applications are due August 10, 2018.
