24 new jobs are coming to the area through the delayed Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program.
Nearly $96,000 of federal money will be split between eight area businesses. Six of the employers are in North Bay, accounting for 21 of the jobs. One organization in New Liskeard and another in Mattawa make up the rest.
“Every year the Canada Summer Jobs program is able to help small businesses across the country and this year, our riding has truly benefited through these different waves of funding, especially in these tough economic times,” said Nipissing-Timiskaming MP, Anthony Rota in a release.
Due to the pandemic, the CSJ program was halted for this summer, with the available jobs running until the end of the year.
In total, the Nipissing-Timiskaming riding has received over $1.5 million through the CSJ in 2020.
