The Ontario Public Service offers several summer employment programs and opportunities in a variety of positions across ministries, related agencies and community groups that are six to 16 weeks in duration. 

SUMMER LAW STUDENT OPPORTUNITY

First-year and second-year law students have the opportunity to be an integral part of an expert legal team. Positions are available in almost every area of law and in places throughout the province.

ABORIGINAL LAW SUMMER PROGRAM

This program provides first-year and second-year law students who are knowledgeable and experienced with Aboriginal communities and who have a demonstrated interest in Aboriginal law, with an opportunity to work on Aboriginal law and policy issues. 

ONTARIO RANGERS

Some students born only in 1993 will be hired this year to work for eight weeks out of remote camp locations on outdoor jobs that help support biodiversity and combat climate change.  Projects include clearing portages and maintaining hiking trails in Ontario Parks, and monitoring at-risk species.  Application packages (3 parts) are available at school guidance offices, from your local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) or on the Ministry of Natural Resources' website.
