CBRM summer jobs

There was a lot of demand, so federal taxpayer’s are providing more funding for summer jobs for students on the Island this summer.

Sydney-Victoria MP Mark Eyking said an extra $318,000 will be available in his riding for non-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses to create summer jobs for full-time students.  This will mean an additional 140 jobs just in his riding, 85 of them with CBRM.

Mayor Cecil Clarke said prior to this additional funding the municipality only had enough to hire six students.
