Canada Summer Jobs Webinar

Hundreds of businesses and ministry organizations may now be ineligible for the Canada Summer Jobs grant program because of new government regulations. Applicants must now attest that their core mandate and proposed summer jobs do not discriminate on the basis of religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Employers must affirm respect for "reproductive rights” such as abortion and unspecified “other rights [and] values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms."

We will welcome two guests to this free interactive 45-minute EFC webinar on Thurs. Jan. 25 at noon EST. They will update us all on the latest developments in this situation, answer your questions live, and inform us of what Canadians troubled by this change can do.

The guests are Barry Bussey, Director, Legal Affairs for the Canadian Council of Christian Charities, and Julia Beazley, Director, Public Policy for The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.

You can also learn more about this controversy at http://www.evangelicalfellowship.ca/summerjobsgrants. If you miss this webinar you will be able to watch a recording of it later at http://www.evangelicalfellowship.ca/webinars.
