Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced 45,000 summer jobs are available for Canadian youth, starting Wednesday.

“We now have over 45,000 jobs available for young people,” Trudeau said during his daily press conference.

On May 27, Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, kicked off the hiring period for Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) 2020.

“We recognize that young people are particularly hard hit by COVID-19 and that is why we made changes this year to the Canada Summer Jobs program. I encourage Canada’s young people to go to Job Bank and check out what’s available to them,” Qualtrough said in a statement.

“Youth are powerful leaders of change, and during these difficult times we are proud to support them as they help out our communities and shape a better and more resilient Canada.”

Thousands of opportunities are being posted to the Job Bank website for jobs available across the country and “a thousand more” will be posted over the coming weeks and months, with a target of approximately 70,000 placements.
