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 eligible projects for his or her 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 provide feedback to help ensure local priorities are met.

Service Canada will inform you of the status of your application starting in April 2021. All eligibility and funding decisions will be confirmed in writing. You can also check the status of your application through GCOS if you applied via GCOS.


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 and the name of a contact person to address any questions you may have regarding your agreement.

Activities cannot begin before your project is approved and an agreement has been signed by both the recipient and Service Canada. The receipt of a completed 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.

If financial irregularities are discovered, Service Canada may verify information with the Canada Revenue Agency.

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

Note: Successful employers may be randomly selected for inspections and audits as per section 20.2 of the Articles of Agreement.
