Funding: Canada Summer Jobs – Follow-up

From: Employment and Social Development Canada

Current status of the call for applications: Closed

Thank you for your interest in Canada Summer Jobs. The call for applications was open from December 17, 2018, to February 3, 2019. We are currently assessing applications received. Service Canada will inform you of the status of your application starting in April 2019.

Step 6. Follow up

What happens after I submit my application?

All assessed applications within a constituency will be ranked according to their assessment score, and a list of recommended projects will be established. Each Member of Parliament will receive the list of projects recommended for their constituency.

Based on their knowledge of local priorities and circumstances, MPs have the opportunity to review the list of assessed projects for their constituencies and to propose changes to help ensure local priorities are met. In cases where MPs do not participate in the review process, the project lists established by Service Canada based on the program assessment criteria are reviewed for approval.

Service Canada will inform you of the status of your application starting in April 2019. All decisions on ineligible and recommended applications (subject to budget availability) will be confirmed in writing (i.e. by email or by mail). You can also check the status of your application through GCOS if you applied via GCOS.

Privacy notice statement

The information you provide is collected under the authority of the Department of Employment and Social Development Act. Refusal to provide information will result in your application not being considered for funding. The information will be used to determine your eligibility for Canada Summer Jobs, its administration and for subsequent evaluation and accountability purposes, and to support the administration or enforcement of other programs in Employment and Social Development Canada, including Service Canada and the Labour Program. The information you provide may also be used for policy analysis and/or research purposes. In order to conduct these activities, various sources of information under the custody and control of the Department may be linked.

Should your application be deemed eligible, the information you provide will be shared with your respective Member of Parliament to ensure local priorities are considered. It will also be used to notify employers whose Canada Summer Jobs funding applications have been approved. The Department and your Member or Parliament may use the information to help promote the program. In accordance with the Privacy Act and Department of Employment and Social Development Act, information on funded applicants will be disclosed.

In the event that the application contains personal information, the personal information will be administered in accordance with the Privacy Act and other applicable laws. You have the right to the protection of, and access to, your personal information. It will be retained in Personal Information bank ESDC PPU 706. Instructions in obtaining this information are outlined in the government publication available online, entitled Info Source. Info Source may also be accessed on-line at any Service Canada Centre.

The application is also subject to the Access to Information Act (ATIA). The ATIA provides every person with a right of access to information under the control of the Department, subject to a limited set of exemptions.


If your application is approved, the “Calculation of Approved Canada Summer Jobs Contribution Amount” document signed by an appropriate delegated authority for Canada will be returned to you, along with other appropriate forms.

Please note that activities cannot begin before your project is approved and an agreement has been signed by both the recipient and Service Canada. The receipt of an application does not in itself constitute a commitment on the part of Service Canada. You should not assume any commitment on the part of Service Canada until funding has been approved and a formal agreement has been signed by a representative of Service Canada. Service Canada will notify you in writing of the outcome of the review of your application.

In the event that financial irregularities are discovered, Service Canada may verify information with the Canada Revenue Agency.

If you submit your application through the online process, please be informed that a signature may be required at a later date.

Decisions regarding the assessment of applications are final; there is no recourse. However, Service Canada will provide you with the name of a contact person to address any questions you may have regarding your application. Please note that successful employers may be randomly selected for inspections and audits as per section 20.2 of the Articles of Agreement.
