The CPRA Green Jobs Initiative was a two-year pilot program funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Summer Work Experience Program. The project provided direct financial support to create new ‘green jobs’ for youth in the parks and recreation sector.

Over the course of the two year program, 23 organizations in New Brunswick participated in the program, and together created 62 new green jobs for youth.

A total of $206,892.30 was directly invested in these New Brunswick youth via the wage subsidy program. Breakdown by year is below.
