Statement made on 02 December 2010 by Senator Jane Cordy

Hon. Jane Cordy:

In the summer of 2008, there were 129,000 students who did not have employment, and this was the highest number since statistics were kept. In 2009 and 2010, the government put $10 million into the summer jobs program and that created about 3,000 jobs, which was a drop in the bucket, nonetheless it was 3,000 students who otherwise would have been unemployed.

This was part of the Economic Action Plan, part of the stimulus program. Will the government continue to put this $10 million into the student summer employment program, or will that program be over as of the end of March 2011?
