The Ontario government is helping Northern Ontario youth gain important work experience through seven newly funded internship placements in Sault Ste. Marie, announced David Orazietti, MPP.
“Our government is continuing to invest in the future of recent graduates in the North by helping employers hire and train new staff members while providing much needed experience for youth seeking employment,” said Orazietti. “The funding announced today will enable seven post-secondary graduates to gain valuable experience while remaining in the Sault and area.”
With the support of the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), seven organizations are receiving funding for youth jobs through the Northern Ontario Internship Program:
· 8:56 LTD – Media and Film Intern

Investing in the province’s youth is part of Ontario’s four-part plan to build Ontario up. The plan includes investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
