Dear Colleagues,

The Young Canada Works (YCW) deadline for student jobs has been extended to
Friday, February 5th, 2021.  The internship deadline is not far behind!

Have you been challenged to design a project or to create a student or
internship opportunity? Have you been struggling to increase your online
presence during the pandemic? The pandemic has forced us all to adapt and
be flexible. This has provided opportunities to work on-site, remotely,
full-time, part-time or some combination of all of the above.

Below are a few examples of projects that were completed in 2020:

   - An Ontario library hired students to improve their video accessibility
   and to produce closed captioning.
   - A New Brunswick archives hired students from Ottawa and Montreal to
   work remotely through DropBox to create archival descriptions for
   - An Alberta library transitioned their reading program from in-person
   to virtual delivery, offering an engaging program through social media that
   attracted new users.
   - Several archival institutions were able to focus on their online
   presence and they produced engaging content that leveraged the talents of
   their YCW students.

CCA will be offering two information sessions for employers that would like
to submit YCW student applications by February 5th. We will explore the key
components of the application and assessment criteria, changes to the
funding guidelines for 2021-2022, and we will discuss tips and options for
adapting your YCW application within the current public health
restrictions. Simultaneous interpretation will be available.

Advanced registration is required. To register for these sessions please

Session 1 - Jan 27th at 1pm EST

Session 2 - Jan 29 at noon EST

To submit questions for the sessions, please email:
