New Support At City Of Temiskaming Shores

McGuinty Government Helping Young Northerners Build Careers

Young northerners are gaining work experience close to home, and northern communities are reaping the benefits.

With support from the province, the City of Temiskaming Shores has hired an accounting clerk intern for one year, who will gain valuable work experience.

Helping northern youth get the work experience they need is part of the McGuinty government's plan to create and support jobs for Ontario families and to strengthen local economies.

Quick Facts

  • Ontario is supporting the placement through the NOHFC's Youth Internship and Co-op Program.
  • Two previous interns hired by the City of Temiskaming Shores through the program both found permanent employment as a result of the training and experience they received during the internship.
  • Since May 2010, Ontario has supported more than 650 placements by investing approximately $12.8 million through the NOHFC's Youth Internship and Co-op Program.
