The Ontario Government is expanding employment opportunities to help young people gain job skills and experience through Youth Job Link and Youth Job Connection.

  3. Tools Needed To Get Me Ready … Making It Happen
    Job search readiness and matching assistance to connect youth with employers offering employment opportunities, including summer jobs.
