More North Island students will have an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and earn money for the upcoming school year thanks to a Government of Canada initiative.

John Duncan, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Island North and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.

“Our Government has received a strong mandate from Canadians to continue creating jobs and economic growth,” said MP Duncan. “That’s why, starting in 2011, we have permanently increased the budget for the Canada Summer Jobs initiative by $10 million.”

This year on the North Island, approximately 75 agreements will be signed with employers and about 150 student summer jobs will be created through nearly $400,000 in Canada Summer Jobs funding.
