* Canada Only * Green Jobs Initiative

The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) has secured Government of Canada funding via Parks Canada to support a “green jobs” program for youth. This program will provide direct financial support (via wage subsidies of up to 50%) to local governments (municipalities, Indigenous communities, etc) and other sector organizations, supporting 700 jobs that focus on employing youth in the conservation and enjoyment of nature and culture.

Canadian local governments, Indigenous communities and other sector organizations are eligible to apply to this Program. Other sector organizations include:
