Real Change: A New Plan For a Strong Middle Class (page 6)


"Based on research conducted by the Department of Finance, it was determined that this was not the most effective or efficient way of spending public resources to create jobs for young people. Budgets 2016 and 2017 invested significantly in the Youth Employment Strategy, nearly doubling the Canada Summer Jobs program, which will help more than 33,000 vulnerable youth develop the skills they need to find work, create 15,000 new green jobs for young Canadians and provide over 1,600 new employment opportunities for youth in the heritage sector. In addition, Budget 2016 announced the creation of an Expert Panel on Youth Employment to assess the barriers faced by vulnerable youth in finding and keeping jobs, and to examine innovative practices used by governments, non-governmental organizations and employers to improve job opportunities for vulnerable youth. Through Budget 2018, the government is providing an additional $448.5 million over five years starting in 2018–19, for the Youth Employment Strategy. This funding extends commitments made in 2016 to nearly double the number of Canada Summer Jobs for summer 2019 with up to 70,000 opportunities for youth. In addition, this funding will provide resources to implement a modernized Youth Employment Strategy, building on the input of the Expert Panel on Youth Employment." - Mandate Letter Tracker
