EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES Spring/Summer 2014 will be posted within the next few weeks.


Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) is an initiative to the Student Work Experience Program delivered by Service Canada.  The program provides wage subsidies to help Canadian employers create career-related summer jobs for students between the ages of 15 and 30 at the start of employment.  Assistance under the program will help fund employment opportunities for Memorial students from May to August.

Eligible student participants must:

- be between 15 and 30 years of age at the start of employment

- have been registered as full-time students in the previous academic year and intend to return to school on a full-time basis in the next academic year

- be Canadian citizens, permanent residents or persons to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act

- be legally entitled to work in accordance with relevant provincial/territorial legislation and regulations

- not be working 30 hours or more per week at another job; and

- not be working more than 40 hours per week under any combination of Memorial University employment

Please note:  an individual employed full-time on a CSJ placement cannot also be a full-time student during the same period.  For this purpose a full-time student is defined as one who is registered in three or more courses, including in-class correspondence.

Rate of Pay:  $12.65 per hour

Normal hours per week (32.5)

Approximate number of weeks:  (7-8) (if funding is consistent with past years)
