Dr. Alan Chan Cowrites study on Canada Summer Jobs Program

This summer, Dr. Alan Chan of Crandall’s Business Administration department co-authored a study with Dr. David Murrell from the University of New Brunswick, looking at the Canada Summer Jobs Program and the way that funds are distributed to support student employment in different regions of the country.

From the paper’s abstract:

The Canada Summer Jobs Program is the federal government’s primary initiative for subsidizing work for the student-age population during off months at educational institutions. Recently, the program has come under scrutiny for Ottawa’s decision to impose a values test on recipient organizations, bringing the program unprecedented public attention.

This paper reviews the national jobs program through a different lens: regional equity. Even though the program is set up as a “people prosperity” initiative instead of a “place prosperity” initiative, there are significant disparities among regions and provinces when it comes to federal job subsidies.
