Good news for CEYS

And there is a great example of such a program here locally.

On Friday, we reported that Brandon’s Career and Employment Youth Services, a not-for-profit office that works with people between the ages of 15 and 30 to help with job searches, had signed a 15-month funding agreement with the federal government.

That agreement came none too soon — CEYS was just about to lock the doors due to a lack of federal cash after the government had told the group that the earliest it “may” get funding was mid-March.

The new agreement will provide them with $400,000 in federal funds to continue service until May 2015.

While we certainly appreciate the federal government’s latest cash infusion for this local organization — around double the amount of the last agreement — we believe groups like this that help local youth find gainful employment deserve a more stable, long-term funding arrangement.

If the federal Conservatives truly mean it when they say they want to put Canadians to work, this kind of program would be a great place to start.
