Petition to the Minister of Canadian Heritage

Whereas:
  • Students of all ages should be able to develop their employment skills through enriching work experiences;
  • The cultural industry needs skilled employees and often uses the wage subsidy component of Young Canada Works program;
  • The percentage of mature students at post-secondary institutions is increasing constantly; and
  • The decision to change career should be encouraged and not penalized.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Canadian Heritage to eliminate the age limit for access to the wage subsidy component of Young Canada Works and Young Canada Works at Building Careers in Heritage.
