YOUTH EMPLOYMENT FUND
The Youth Employment Fund is part of the Ontario government's Youth Jobs Strategy, which is helping 30,000 young people across the province get work experience, start a business or build job skills.
If you are unemployed, not in school full-time and between 15 and 29, Ontario will do more to help you connect with employers and get a job placement of four to six months.
We will provide incentives to employers to help cover the cost of wages and training for new hires and help youth cover costs like transportation or tools required for the job.
Job placements will provide more opportunities for youth to build skills and confidence get valuable work experience and connect with employers.
