Green Jobs Program - Application Open for 2024

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.

Eligible youth who will be engaged in this program must be between 15 and 30 years of age when employment begins. Youth must be hired for a 'green job', however, the definition of green 'green job' is broad. This might include, but is not limited to:

  • Trail maintenance

  • On the land programs 

  • Landscaping

  • Camp Leaders

  • Planning and education

  • Outdoor rinks

  • Natural and cultural heritage
