Employers are receiving a total of $320,327 in federal grants through the program.
Full-time students from the age of 15 to 30 who are returning to school are eligible under Canada Summer Jobs guidelines.
Nickel Belt NDP MP Claude Gravelle shared the news last week with the non-profit organizations, public sector employers, municipalities and smaller private businesses who are benefitting from the program.
"I do not get involved in picking one employer over another for funding but do give input in setting the local priorities and criteria for jobs that would make sense for our region," Gravelle said.
The employers will now publicize the summer jobs and hire.
The federal student jobs program was overhauled several years ago following a NDP-initiated parliamentary study, a press release from Gravelle said.
The program previously allocated funding based on how many post-secondary education students were in a riding.
The NDP argued successfully this was unfair to the north dealing with youth outmigration on account of few job prospects.
"Under the previous Liberal government we had this classic Catch 22 that students left the north to find work and then the number of jobs created over the summer based on the funding forumula got reduced," Gravelle said.
The NDP also succeeded in having the program's age ceiling moved to 30 to include older students.
