Hundreds of businesses and ministry organizations may now be ineligible for the Canada Summer Jobs grant program because of new government regulations. Applicants must now attest that their core mandate and proposed summer jobs do not discriminate on the basis of religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Employers must affirm respect for “reproductive rights” such as abortion and unspecified “other rights [and] values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.” We will welcome Barry Bussey, Director, Legal Affairs for the Canadian Council of Christian Charities, to this free interactive webinar on Thurs. Jan. 25 at noon EST. We will update you on the latest developments in this situation, answer your questions live, and inform you of what Canadians troubled by this change can do.
