Consider working in essential services

While the job market adapts to the realities of COVID-19, many employers are looking for workers to provide essential services to our country. Now is the time to consider how your skills and experience could benefit your community in one of Canada’s key sectors.

Whether it’s by stocking grocery store shelves or protecting IT networks, you can play a role in Canada’s economic recovery.

Are you 30 or under?

As many provinces and territories have started reopening their economy, the Government of Canada is investing to help young Canadians get back to work and build a brighter tomorrow.

If you’re 30 years old or younger, new jobs and opportunities are created for you daily. Check out Canada Summer Jobs, a program that gives funding to employers in key sectors to help them hire young Canadians full-time or part-time for a minimum of six weeks.

Students can also apply to get a micro-grant to finance a project that would benefit their community.
