Aligned with the overarching goal of the CPRA Green Jobs Initiative, a new Youth Training component has been developed to build skills and capacity in the Canadian parks and recreation sector. To meet this objective, the CPRA Green Jobs Initiative: Youth Training Component will provide direct funding to eligible organizations that will enable training and skills development in youth (those aged 15 to 30). This effort will:
- Prepare youth for entry into the workforce;
- Build skills; and
- Build capacity in the parks and recreation sector, allowing more Canadians to participate in the enjoyment of natural and cultural heritage across Canada.
The application period is open now, and will remain open until March 18, 2022, or until all project funding has been allocated. Applications will be reviewed weekly, and funding awarded on a rolling basis.
This program is funded by the Government of Canada.
