Funding: Canada Summer Jobs – Apply

Apply

The application deadline is January 12, 2023 at 11:59 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.

Applications received or postmarked after the deadline date will not be considered.

Ways to submit your application

It is recommended that you submit your application electronically using:

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.

1. Grants and Contributions Online Services (GCOS)

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

If not, creating a GCOS account takes around 2 weeks and is a one-time process. Please create your GCOS account ahead of time.

GCOS can be used to apply for various funding opportunities with ESDC in a secure web environment. GCOS allows you to submit and track your application status, sign agreements, manage active projects, submit supporting documents, and review past projects submitted through GCOS.

Visit the GCOS website for step-by-step instructions to create an account. Please use your organization’s RP (payroll) business number assigned by the CRA to create your GCOS account.

Confirmation of receipt

Once a GCOS application has been successfully submitted, a 12-character confirmation number will be 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, your application has not been submitted. Please ensure to click “submit” before you exit your application. For more information on the GCOS application confirmation number, please consult the Grants and contributions online services: Canada Summer Jobs user guide.

Moreover, if you experience any technical issues, please refer to the Grants and contributions online services: Canada Summer Jobs user guide.

2. Online fillable application

You can submit a fillable application online.

Important technical notes

  • Your draft application in the online fillable form will become unavailable if left inactive for 20 minutes.
  • Your application can be saved and accessed at a later time. In order to save a draft application, you must provide your email address and create a password. Once saved, an email will be sent to you with a link to resume completion of the application. However, you must complete and submit the application within 48 hours. Otherwise, the saved copy of your application will expire and all inputted information will be lost. If the password created is forgotten, it cannot be reset and the application will be lost.
  • You can print a copy of your online application for your records. However, in order to do this this, you must print a copy before submitting your application online. Once submitted, you will not be able to print it.

Note

You must still click “submit” to complete your application. If you do not click “submit”, your application will not be received and processed.
