Atholville, New Brunswick - Employment and Social Development Canada - Canada’s prosperity depends on young Canadians getting a fair chance at success in the workplace. By helping them gain the skills and experience they need to launch meaningful careers, we are investing in our greatest asset – our people.
The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, announced funding that will help young Canadians get hands-on work experience and transition to the workforce.
Through the Career Focus program, the Government of Canada is providing over $145,000 to R2 Employment Solutions. Funding will create opportunities for 12 youth in Campbellton, New Brunswick, to gain the skills and confidence to build an exciting and promising future.
Career Focus is part of the Youth Employment Strategy and supports projects that help post-secondary graduates transition to the labour market through paid internships, and helps to provide them with the information and experience they need to make informed career decisions, find a job and/or pursue advanced studies. Partner organizations could include not-for-profit organizations, municipal governments, Indigenous organizations, for-profit organizations, and provincial and territorial governments, institutions, agencies and Crown Corporations.Source : Government Of Canada
