Toronto— Employment Ontario has announced its plans for youth employment for this summer. Interested persons can apply for summer jobs, start businesses or access employment services at Employment Ontario’s ‘Ready.Set.Work’ website.
Since 2004, Ontario’s summer jobs programs have helped almost 1.1 million students find summer jobs. 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.
“Providing Ontario’s young people with access to a wide variety of summer work opportunities helps them build valuable experience while saving for their future education. By supporting Ontario’s Summer Jobs programs, our government is helping students test their skills and discover their passion, which is a vital investment in the future of our province,” said Reza Moridi, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities.
