The City of Windsor is receiving funding from the Canada Summer Jobs program for work opportunities for young people.

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens was joined by Irek Kusmierczyk, Member of Parliament (MP) for Windsor-Tecumseh, and Brian Masse, Member of Parliament for Windsor West, on Friday to announce the successful application by the City of Windsor and other local organizations resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in summer job funding.

The Windsor West office was able to approve the City of Windsor’s Canada Summer Jobs application for 107 students totalling $224,700 in funding. The Windsor-Tecumseh riding secured 80 positions valued at $168,000 in funding. The majority of the positions will help the City’s Parks Department to plant, tend, and maintain gardens and parks during the busy summer months. Other departments benefiting from summer youth workers include Environmental Planning, Public Works Technical Support, and Windsor Public Library Records & Archives.

Canada Summer Jobs provides wage subsidies to employers from not-for-profit organizations, the public sector, and small private sector organizations to create quality summer work experiences for young people ages 15 to 30 years.
