Youth in Ontario can now apply for summer jobs and gain valuable skills and experience this summer.
Since 2004, Ontario’s Summer Jobs programs have helped almost 1,100,000 students find summer jobs, start businesses and access employment services. Each year, the programs help more than 100,000 students and youth:
Find a summer job through Employment Ontario or community agencies.
Get help with résumé writing and preparing for interviews.
Apply for funding to start their own summer businesses.
Gain experience working with the Ontario government.
More information is available at www.ontario.ca/readysetwork, along with details on year-round programs to help youth under 30 build skills, start a business, or find a job.
Helping young people get work experience is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
