Federal funding helps Town provide youth employment opportunities

The Town of Ladysmith is pleased to be providing employment opportunities for youth this summer, assisting in building their skillset outside the classroom and laying the foundation for respective future career paths.  

The Town is approved for $23,177 through the 2022 Canada Summer Jobs to assist in funding 2,960 hours across 10 positions for 8 weeks.   The federal wage subsidy program helps to create quality summer work experiences for young people aged 15 to 30 years.  

Recognizing the importance of employing youth, the Town contributes an additional $47,423 to ensure the students maximize their learning and job experience.

As a result of the funding, the Town has hired a Sustainability Ambassador. The youth will carry on the momentum of the program, which launched last year and aims to engage with residents on water conservation and contaminated recycling.

Youth will also hold parks staff positions, ensuring Ladysmith’s green spaces, sportsfields, gardens and trails are maintained to a high standard when the public is using them the most.

The Town is also hiring several temporary staff for our popular summer Adventure Zone Day Camps at the Frank Jameson Community Centre and Transfer Beach. 

Find more details on day camp registration in the Summer Activity Guide.  Camps run from July 4 – August 26 with a new theme each week.
