The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) has secured Government of Canada funding via the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS) Program to support job placements for youth. Via the CPRA Youth Employment Experience program, eligible organizations (local governments including cities, towns, communities, among others) will be able to hire additional youth (via 100% wage subsidies) to work in the community parks and recreation sector.
Over the course of this 3-year program, over 250 youth will be engaged in the CPRA Youth Employment Experience program. Calls for funding will be announced each year. The program will end in December 2023.
