Who are we looking for?

These positions are only made possible through the Canada Summer Jobs program, this federal grant funding requires that successful candidates: 

* International students are not eligible participants. International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of the Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market

The Downtown New West BIA believes in employment equity and encourages applications from youth who self-identify as being part of underrepresented groups or as having additional barriers to entering or staying in the labour market, as outlined below:

How to apply:

Please email your cover letter and resume to info@downtownnewwest.ca by March 30th, 2023 - we thank all who apply, but only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
