    canada summer jobs

    Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) is an initiative of the Summer Work Experience program. It provides wage subsidies to employers to create employment for secondary and post-secondary students.

    By way of five national priorities, CSJ 2018 supports the following:

    • Employers who intend to hire youth who are in underrepresented groups, including new immigrant youth/refugees, Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities and visible minorities.
    • Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs
    • Organizations that support opportunities for official language minority communities
    • Organizations that provide services and/or supports for the LGBTQ2 community
    • Organization that support opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and information and communications and technology (ICT), particularly for women.

    Up to $2,500 for collaborative history projects 

    History projectsHi Funds Fans!  Here’s a darling little fund for collaborative projects aimed at improving history education within Canada.

    THEN/HiER is the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. Their goal is to stimulate an active, participatory dialogue among these various communities of history educators, a dialogue that explores how best to improve history education in all its forms through more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research.

    Through the Small Projects Grant Program, each year THEN/HiER sets aside $25,000 to support small projects and events related to history teaching and learning in Canada. They welcome proposals from THEN/HiER partner organizations and individuals, including graduate students, as well as others engaged in history education research and practice in Canada. THEN/HiER will consider requests for support up to a maximum of $2,500There is no deadline to apply as they will consider requests for funding throughout the year.

    Proposals should indicate in the budget other sources of funding, including in-kind contributions. They should also clearly state how the project will involve collaboration across different THEN/HiER constituencies (for example, between teachers and academic historians, or between teacher educators and a public history organization such as a museum).
