June 25, 2020 – Prime Minister’s Office: Post-secondary students and recent graduates are facing unique and unprecedented challenges because of COVID-19. There are fewer jobs, and many co-op, internship, and community service placements have been cancelled.
The Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG) will support post-secondary students and recent graduates as they volunteer to serve in their communities’ COVID-19 response and gain valuable experience at the same time.
The CSSG will provide these volunteers with a one-time payment of between $1,000 and $5,000 based on the number of hours they serve.
