The Canada Summer Jobs Program is accepting applications until Jan. 29 for a 75 per cent subsidy for student employees.
The program is open to farmers as well as others and this year the government is prepared to support 120,000 students compared with 80,000 last summer.
Similar to last year, workers can stay on the job until late February. They can also be hired for part-time work. The program is open to students between ages 15 and 30.
