Canada Summer Jobs


The negative impact of the federal Liberal government’s attestation policy is felt at both the organization level and the community level. What Prime Minister Trudeau has done is simply wrong!

Rising on a Question of Privilege

To deny certain Canadian taxpayers from accessing government programs or grants because of their belief, faith, personal conscience or opinion, all of which are guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, even if they are contrary to the views or policies of the Liberal Party of Canada, is offensive and a breach of privilege and impedes my ability to administer, on behalf of my constituents, the Canada Summer Jobs Program.


Canadians cherish the rights and freedoms on which our country was built, and this includes the right to freedom of belief and expression. Conservatives know these rights are for everyone, which is why we opposed Justin Trudeau's new values test on Canada Summer Jobs funding.

I've filmed a video update to explain where the issue stands in Parliament, how this will impact members of our community, and the actions I'm taking on your behalf as the Member of Parliament for Langley - Aldergrove.


On Thursday, March 1, 2018 Conservatives introduced the following motion in the House of Commons:

That, in the opinion of the House, organizations that engage in non-political non-activist work, such as feeding the homeless, helping refugees, and giving kids an opportunity to go to camp, should be able to access Canada Summer Jobs funding regardless of their private convictions and regardless of whether or not they choose to sign the application attestation.

On Monday, March 19, 2018 MPs voted on whether or not to impose Justin Trudeau’s values test, which is now required to receive Canada Summer Jobs funding. Watch the vote here:
