This year the government has made it easier than ever to apply for CSJ funding. Everything can be submitted online through our Government Grants and Contributions Online Service. You can complete the application at your leisure and track its status once it has been submitted.
Funding is available for not-for-profit organizations and public and private sector employers with 50 or fewer employees.

CSJ focuses on local priorities, encouraging more employers to come forward with applications that support and complement a number of national priorities. These include:
Organizations that provide services to, and that express an intent to hire, youth who self-identify as being part of the groups which are underrepresented or have additional barriers to the labour market;
Opportunities for youth to gain work experience related to the skilled trades;
Opportunities for youth in rural areas, remote communities and Official Language Minority Communities;
Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs; and
Organizations which deliver supports or services to seniors.
