CPRA is now accepting grant applications for their Green Jobs Initiative – a program that empowers youth by creating meaningful job placements.
The program will provide direct financial support (via 50% wage subsidies) to local governments (municipalities, Indigenous communities, etc.) and other sector organizations, to support nearly 140 jobs that focus on green career-related activities.
By empowering youth with job opportunities and fostering environmental stewardship, we contribute to their personal growth, the advancement of community priorities, and creating a sustainable future for our communities and our planet.
Funding for this program is provided by Parks Canada as part of the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS). As such, CPRA will prioritize funding for organizations who commit to hiring youth who face barriers to employment including but not limited to the following groups:
All 2024 applications are due Friday, February 16, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. EST.

This program is funded by the Government of Canada.
