Subject: YCW HO Application Deadline Extension


Young Canada Works in Heritage Organization application deadline: January 22, 2021 February 5, 2021

Young Canada Works in Building Careers in Heritage application deadline: March 1, 2021


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 recordings.
  • 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.
