SURREY —The federal riding of Cloverdale-Langley is receiving $421,000 from the Canadian government to fund 117 summer jobs for students, Liberal MP John Aldag said.

“The Canada Summer Jobs program is an excellent way for youth in our community to gain valuable work experience and learn skills that will benefit them in the future,” said Aldag, MP for the riding. “I thank the various organizations that applied for taking part in this amazing program to help our youth. I look forward to visiting these organizations this summer and meet the students they have employed.”

Aldag said some of the jobs, for students aged 15 to 30, involve work with youth service organizations, summer camps and helping seniors.

Liberal MP Randeep Sarai recently announced that his riding of Surrey Centre will receive more than half a million dollars in Canada Summer Jobs Program funding tied to 154 summer jobs for students between the ages 15 to 30.

“These summer jobs are aimed to help non-profit organizations and small businesses in Surrey Centre with the extra support they need while creating valuable experience for young Canadians,” Sarai said.

The jobs in Surrey Centre are in crime prevention, small businesses and local organizations that provide programs and services for the homeless, senior citizens, low-income people and youth deemed to be at risk.

The new federal government’s first budget increased the number of summer jobs that receive federal funding to 70,000 from 35,000 this year and has earmarked $339 million over three years to fund the summer jobs program.
