Many young Canadians are facing an unprecedented challenge in the wake of COVID-19. Whether you’ve recently graduated and were looking forward to starting your career, or you’re still in school and counting on summer employment to pay tuition, or pursuing a national service opportunity – our Government has your back. The Canada Emergency Student Benefit will support students and recent graduates who are not covered by CERB in order to ensure they are able to continue their studies and pay for tuition in the fall. We’re also helping students gain valuable work experience and serve their communities through the new Canada Student Service Grant, and by making temporary changes to expand the Canada Summer Jobs program, which employs 70,000 each year. We are also proposing additional tuition support measures, including broadening the eligibility for Student Financial Assistance. These significant new supports will help young Canadians get through this crisis and play a central role in ensuring Canada emerges from these challenges stronger than ever.
