  • Experience Ontario
    Experience Ontario is a two-year, $20-million pilot program that will give approximately 600 students across the province valuable work experience, career coaching and mentorship in its first year. The program will encourage graduating high school students to choose the appropriate postsecondary educational path for them, and will help them succeed once they enrol.

  • Youth Job Connection
    Youth Job Connection is one of a suite of new employment programs being developed as part of Employment and Training Services Integration (ETSI), a key government initiative that is modernizing and transforming Ontario's employment and training programs and services to improve access and provide job seekers and employers with proven, coordinated and targeted services that meet their needs. The program will serve youth aged 15 to 29 who experience multiple and/or complex barriers to employment by providing more intensive supports beyond traditional job search and placement opportunities.
  • Youth Job Connection: Summer
    A summer component of Youth Job Connection that provides summer, part-time and after-school job opportunities to high school students aged 15 to 18 who are facing challenging life circumstances and may need support transitioning between school and work.
  • Youth Job Link
    Youth Job Link is aimed at youth, including students, who do not face significant barriers to employment. Services include access to job search resources and information to help them transition to the labour market, including summer employment. Youth Job Link also features employer incentives to offset the cost of on-the-job training.
