An Ontario government program helps students find a summer job through free job search support and placement services. It also provides a $2 per hour hiring incentive for employers hiring a student during the summer.

Students, 15 to 30 years old, who plan to return to school in the fall, qualify for the program. Those employers who qualify for the program are private, not-for-profit, or broader public sector organizations operating and offering summer jobs in Ontario. To receive a hiring incentive for a summer student placement, an employer must also ensure liability and workplace safety insurance coverage for the student placement, and not be related to the student.
