Young Canada Works (YCW) 2024-2025 Campaign Launched

November 22, 2023

The Young Canada Works 2024-2025 campaign has launched!

The Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) is pleased to announce that the 2024-2025 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.


The application deadline for short-term student jobs (HO) and internships (BCH) is January 19, 2024.

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 2024-2025.

Please note that the application assessment process will take into account the following priorities:

  • Indigenous employers (eligible projects);
  • projects aimed at Indigenous participants (Indigenous or non-Indigenous employer – youth who self-identifies as First Nations, Inuit, Métis and/or urban or non-affiliated Indigenous youth.);
  • projects focusing on Indigenous cultural heritage (Indigenous or a non-Indigenous employer); and
  • hiring youth that are part of equity-deserving groups.

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.
