青年就业拨款计划:联邦政府宣布将于未来三年拨款4,000万元,在一些「高需求」的行业中设立共3,000个有薪实习职位。科学、科技、工程、数学及技术行业方面刚毕业学生将特别受惠。私营机构的有薪实习职位,将于2014至2016年期间,由加拿大国家研究院(National Research Council)及政府的职业生涯关注计划(Career Focus Program)所支付。

2006年以来联邦政府在全国推行「年轻人就业策略」(Youth Employment Strategy)包括技能连接计划(Skills Link)、职业侧重计划(Career Focus)和加拿大暑期工计划(Canada Summer Jobs)。
1) 技能连通:主要为单亲父母、残障青年、新移民青年及偏远地区青年打破就业屏障。
2) 职业侧重计划:为雇主提供资助,使他们聘请大学专上毕业生,让他们做所学专业有关的工作,为进入职场做好准备。
透过这项为年轻人及私人企业配对实习机会的计划,帮助刚走出校门,尚未积累起所需要的经验和人脉的年轻人,迈出就业第一步找到专业工作;同时也帮助僱主解决专才短缺的困境。

▼卑诗鼓励就业广告惹青少年反感, 为啥?

为鼓励青年就业,卑诗省政府在新学年开始,斥资逾60万元在校园标版和地铁车厢大卖广告,可惜卖弄幽默不成变为讽刺,反惹学生反感,其中一辑广告直指「与有钱人结婚的计画未必能实现」。有学生团体批评,这系列广告品味差劣,将青少年描绘成终日无所事事的人,失业皆因无意求职。
根据卑诗省政府上周发表的统计数字显示,该省整体失业率为6.5%,而15至24岁的失业率却高达14.7%。
为了鼓励青少年就业,市府特地斥资60万4千元,聘用一间广告公司推行宣传计画,并设立了一个相关的求职网站。

「潮人不是一份工作」
近日多个校园和地铁车厢相继出现显眼的标语牌,上面写上:「潮人(hipster)不是一份工作」、「毫无疑问,你一定会中 彩票」。
卑诗省加拿大学生联盟(Canadian Federation of Students)主席Katie Marocchi表示:「这些广告充满冒犯性,品味差劣,他们暗示青少年终日无所事事,不愿找工作,反映这个政府是何等脱离现实,一味说没有资金投放在专上教育之上,但却花大笔钱告诉我们,(失业)完全是我们的错。」她最讨厌的广告语句是「与有钱人结婚的计画未必能实现」。

新民主党成员奥马汉尼(Gwen O'Mahony)指,广告欲採用幽默风格,奈何他们脱离目标群众。

VANCOUVER—Can’t find a job? Put away the skinny jeans and the thick-rimmed glasses, the B.C. government is suggesting.

The province has unveiled a series of billboards on campuses and transit lines hoping to encourage young people get a job. But the ads appear to have sparked only disdain from the audience it’s aiming to reach with slogans such as “Hipster is not a full-time job” and “Oh sure, you’ll definitely win the lottery,” prompting some on Twitter to note, sarcastically, that it’s not easy wearing old-school sneakers or growing a scruffy beard.

"These ads are offensive and in poor taste because they imply youths are just sitting around and not wanting to gain employment,” said Katie Marocchi, chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Students in B.C. “It shows how this government is disconnected from reality when they insist there’s no money to invest in post-secondary and then they spend money telling us it’s all our fault.”.

Marocchi said she especially disliked the ad that says “Because marrying rich may not pan out.”

The $604,000 campaign coincided with the start of the school year. Andy Watson, public affairs officer with the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, said Cossette was the advertising agency that came up with the campaign. Neither Cossette nor Pat Bell, the minister for the department that launched the anti-hipster ads, responded to request for comment.

Gwen O’Mahony, the NDP’s skills training critic, said students find the ads offensive.

"They get the ads are trying to use humour but it just seems they’re not connecting with the audience,” she said.

According to B.C. Stats figures released last week, residents between the ages of 15 to 24 have a 14.7 per cent unemployment rate; that compares to a 6.5 per cent unemployment rate for the overall B.C. population.

Cameron Bell, associate director of campus sustainability with the Northern Undergraduate Student Society at the University of Northern B.C. in Prince George, said the campaign’s website itself is good and helps young people look for work or consider training. But the focus, Bell added, is on industrial jobs.

"We know the government is clearly promoting a jobs plan and there’s all these jobs for ship building and industrial work but you can’t force people to take on a particular job in this day and age and certainly not with the message they’re using that being a hipster is not a real job,” said Bell.

University of Victoria Students’ Society chair Emily Rose said the reaction to the ads is taking away from the message that B.C. youths face chronic unemployment.

"There’s no bachelor of hipsterdom offered and people understand hipster is a style of dress so it just doesn’t make sense to associate being a hipster with real jobs. They’ve really lost the message,” she said.
