Your Summer Job Is Out There
McGuinty Government Supports Jobs For Students
If you're a student looking for a summer job, or an employer looking to hire for the summer, the Ontario government can help.
Through Ontario's Summer Jobs Strategy, the government is helping students find a summer job; launch their own summer business and offering employers a $2-per-hour hiring incentive.
Job opportunities are now available through Employment Ontario's Summer Jobs website, where students can:
- find job listings
- search for a job through Employment Ontario agencies
- improve their marketing skills and resume writing
- start their own Summer Company
- apply for a job with the Ontario government.
Helping students find a summer job is part of the McGuinty government's plan to create jobs and help every student succeed.
- Ontario's summer jobs programs and services are open to students aged 15 to 30 years who are planning to return to school this fall.
- Last summer, the government helped more than 100,000 students find jobs.
- Job search support is available year round and summer job placements can begin as early as April.
“These initiatives generate exciting summer employment opportunities for youth, and foster tomorrow's business leaders. Giving students a chance to see first hand how their company's bottom line affects them economically offers students a real appreciation for business - and motivates them to work all that much harder.”
“With a summer job, students discover what a workplace is really like, and learn about their own strengths and talents. Young people can earn money for their studies, gain new experiences, and contribute to Ontario's overall future.”
