How to submit your application

Applications can be submitted in several ways:

It is recommended that you submit your application electronically using the online fillable application or GCOS. The online fillable application allows you to complete an application online without having to create an account. This is the easiest and fastest way to submit a one-time application. While creating a GCOS account is a one-time process, it allows you to apply and track your application status, sign agreements, manage active projects and submit supporting documents. In addition, GCOS can save business’ information and past CSJ applications, making it much faster to submit all future CSJ applications.

Please note that the ability to submit an application in person or by mail could be impacted by office closures.

Applications received by fax or by email will not be considered.

1. Online fillable application

You can submit a fillable application online.

Confirmation of receipt

Once a fillable application has been successfully submitted, a confirmation number is immediately generated by the system. This confirmation is considered the acknowledgement of receipt of your application. You will also receive a confirmation of receipt sent by email. If you do not receive a confirmation number acknowledging the application has been received, you have not completed the submission properly.

2. Grants and Contributions Online Services (GCOS)

If you have an active GCOS account and need details about completing the application online, visit Access GCOS.

You can register with the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) Grants and Contributions Online Services (GCOS). Creating a GCOS account takes around two weeks, but is a one-time process. Please create your GCOS account ahead of time.

Important

The employer must offer the job within the constituency for which the application is submitted. This includes cases where the youth will work remotely, or away from the supervisor’s location, or from somewhere else outside of a traditional work environment.

You must inform Service Canada if the location of the job changes. If a change occurs after you are approved for funding, Service Canada must first agree to the change, otherwise the job may be considered ineligible for funding.

The majority of the work should be performed within the constituency where they have been approved. A job could have multiple sites; however, under the current conditions, remote work may be a necessity. If the work will be performed remotely, at a personal premises (for example, employee's home), or away from the supervisor's location, or from somewhere else outside of a traditional work environment, employers are responsible for ensuring that the location respects provincial laws and municipal by-laws, and to continue to provide adequate supervision, mentoring, and safety provisions as per the Canada Summer Jobs Applicant Guide. Regardless of the work arrangements used, employers must ensure that youth are working from locations within Canada.

Please note the following definitions:

Working remotely/telework: a flexible work arrangement whereby employees have approval to carry out some or all of their work duties from a telework place.

Designated workplace: the employee's designated workplace or business address where the employee would work if there were no telework situation.

Telework place: the alternative location where the employee is permitted to carry out the work otherwise performed at or from their designated workplace.

15. If the proposed activities will take place in multiple locations, will they be held within the same constituency?

If the proposed activities will take place in multiple locations within the same constituency, submit one application listing all of the locations for that constituency. Enter all the other addresses where the youth will be working. These addresses must be civic addresses; they cannot be post office boxes (PO Box).

Submit a separate application for each constituency if the locations of the proposed activities are in multiple constituencies. To determine the constituency in which the activities will take place, consult the Elections Canada website.

18. Is a payment plan in place?

Attestation

When submitting your application, you are asked to check the box “I attest” to confirm that:
  • I have read, understood and will comply with the Canada Summer Jobs Articles of Agreement;
  • I have all the necessary authorities, permissions and approvals to submit this application on behalf of myself and my organization;
  • The job would not be created without the financial assistance provided under a potential contribution agreement; and,
  • Any funding under the Canada Summer Jobs program will not be used to undermine or restrict the exercise of rights legally protected in Canada.

To “undermine or restrict” means to weaken or limit the ability to exercise rights legally protected in Canada.

Note:

The Attestation is required for the application (submitted on a paper form or online) to be considered complete. If you are submitting your application online, you must check this box in order to proceed, otherwise the system will not allow you to continue. If you are submitting a paper application you must check this box in order for your application to be assessed.

Should an application or a project not be compliant with program eligibility criteria and/or the Articles of Agreement, your project may not be funded.

The provision of false and misleading information will affect eligibility and funding may be revoked.

24. to 25. Name of the organization’s representative(s)

An organization’s CSJ application, if approved by Service Canada, forms part of the agreement between the Government of Canada and the organization. The organization will then be subject to the CSJ Articles of Agreement. The organization agrees under this agreement to provide the job at the hourly wage, for the number of hours per week and the number of weeks described in the Calculation of Approved Canada Summer Jobs Contribution Amount document. This document will be included in the approval package.

The submission of an application does not constitute an agreement. An official agreement between the organization and the Government of Canada exists only once an application is approved and an agreement is signed by Service Canada. It is important that you read the applicant guide and Articles of Agreement in their entirety before you sign the application.

Therefore, it is important that only authorized persons’ names are identified on the submitted application. Read Section 36 of the Articles of Agreement prior to signature: “The Employer warrants that its representative(s) identified in this Application/Agreement has (have) the authority to enter into an agreement on its behalf and agrees to provide Canada with such evidence of that authorization as Canada may reasonably require.”
