WIN: $448.5 million invested to help youth get work experience

In Budget 2018, the federal government committed $448.5 million over 5 years to the Youth Employment Strategy (YES). The YES funds the Canada Summer Jobs program which creates summer work opportunities for young Canadians, and it also provides funding to organizations that help youth develop workforce skills and make informed career decisions.

CASA focused strongly on student employment issues in the 2017-2018 year, publishing a student (un)employment policy paper, and bringing the issue to Parliament Hill during our Advocacy Week.
