STUDENTS WORKING IN TIMMINS-JAMES BAY: Local Agencies Benefit From Canada Summer Jobs


Charlie Angus held a news conference this morning with a number of groups touting the benefits of the Canada Summer Jobs Program. Angus was joined by the Alzheimer’s Society, Red Cross, Seizure and Brain Injury Center and the Women’s Shelter. Angus says over 220 students are working this summer in this riding.


We received record funding this year and that has allowed more organizations to take advantage of the program. But more importantly, more students are able to get jobs to build work experience.”


Timmins-James Bay got an additional 53-thousand dollars from Service Canada on top of the 600-thousand dollars already allocated to help hire summer students this year. Angus says the government had surplus funding left and we were able to secure even more for the region. 


We have always worked very closely with Service Canada on the summer jobs program.We are going to provide over 220 jobs for students this summer. That is quite significant and a record for this riding.”


Rhonda Latendresse of Seizure and Brain Injury says they would not be able to hire anyone without this program. “This allows us to expand our services which better serves our clients.”

Angus adds, even with record funding, many groups were not able to get approved this year. “We always take note of those who don’t get students to try and make sure the dollars are continued to be spread evenly and fairlyin the future.”


Money is spread right across the riding from Martyn Falls to Kashechewan to Englehart to Cochrane to Larder Lake. Last year Timmins James Bay got $309-thousand dollars and created 130 jobs.
