Chan on the Summer Jobs Programme

Announcing a guest post on the “attestation” applicants to the federal government’s Summer Jobs Programme must provide

This is just a note to announce a forthcoming guest post by Kathryn Chan on the “attestation” that the federal government requires any would-be recipient of funding under its Summer Jobs Programme to provide. As explained in my own recent post about it, businesses and non-profits that wish to apply for funding to support their hiring of young Canadians for summer jobs need to tell the government that their “core mandate” is consistent with a raft of Charter and “other” rights, as well as Charter values. I was sharply critical of this requirement in my post. Prof. Chan, who teaches and writes about public law and charity law at the University of Victoria, brings her own perspective on this issue, which I think will add something valuable to the debate. I am looking forward to her post.
