The Government of Canada describes their Youth Employment Strategy as their “commitment to help young people, particularly those facing barriers to employment, get the information and gain the skills, work experience and abilities they need to make a successful transition into the labour market.” The strategy includes programs that train young people, provide employers with funding to hire students and youth, and more.
As long-time advocates for youth employment programming and support, CASA was pleased to see, yet again, a large investment in the Youth Employment Strategy for Budget 2017.
