    The Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) is pleased to announce that the 2023-2024 campaign for the Young Canada Works (YCW) program for heritage organizations has launched. This program is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH), supporting the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy.

    All archival institutions, as well as libraries operating in English, can now apply online for short-term jobs for students (YCW in Heritage Organizations), and internships for graduates (YCW at Building Careers in Heritage) via the official YCW website ( https://young-canada-works.canada.ca/Account/Login ).

    Deadline

    The application deadline for short-term student jobs (HO) and internships (BCH) is January 20, 2023.

    Government Priorities

    The Government of Canada is committed to strengthening diversity and inclusion in youth employment.

    It is important to note the government priorities for 2023-2024.

    Indigenous organizations, youth, and cultural heritage, including applications:

      *   from Indigenous employers (eligible projects);

      *   for a project aimed at Indigenous participants (Indigenous or a non-Indigenous employers);

      *   for a project focusing on Indigenous cultural heritage (Indigenous or a non-Indigenous employers); and

      *   underserved communities and populations (i.e. Indigenous communities, ethno-cultural communities, youth that are facing barriers to employment, etc.).

    *If you have already submitted your application and would like to make changes based on these government priorities, please contact us so that we can unlock your application promptly.

    Please visit CCA’s website for more information: https://archivescanada.ca/young-canada-works/ .

    This year’s two-day seminar and symposium brings together students, scholars, and practitioners whose work challenges dominant archival paradigms, and who reimagine and redefine archival concepts and practices.
