Hundreds more students in New Brunswick will be employed within the province this summer, thanks to the SEED program.

The SEED, Student Employment Experience Development, program will see 200 new jobs created for students this year.

“We heard loud and clear from New Brunswickers that we must do more to help our youth,” Premier Brian Gallant said in a release on Thursday.

The government announced 1,600 students jobs will be made available in comparison to the 1,400 that were available last year.

The program matches post-secondary students with employers in the province and for the summer semester. The government says they’ve also made applying for the jobs easier and are taking politics out of the process.

Students and employers can start applying for the jobs on April 1 using this application site.
