Students & Youth - Employment

There are specific resources available to provide information for students and youths in relation to employment. Information about rates of pay, job opportunities, work experience programs, and job postings specific for students are all available. The government of Canada offers summer job and internship opportunities, and private sector employers are encouraged to create summer jobs for students aged 15-30 by being offered wage subsidies. There are many community organizations and private companies who also specialize in helping youths and students find employment, by offering career counseling, help with resume writing, interview skills preparation courses, and specific job listings geared towards students and youths. Do you have a youth at home who is looking for an age-appropriate job? Are you wondering at what age they can start working, and what the average rate of pay is? Would you like more information about the various government-provided resources in your community to help a student or youth find and keep a part-time or summer job? Or are you a small business owner interested in being subsidized for hiring a student this coming summer? There are many resources available, and we have them for you here.
