Tuesday, March 15th, 2016Youth Job Link

Part of Ontario Youth Jobs Strategy, Youth job link is one program in the new suite of services to address youth unemployment.  This program has a range of employment services that offer young people an opportunity to gain career management skills, exposure to career exploration activities, and assistance with finding employment, including summer jobs and part-time employment during the school year.

To be eligible for Individual-focused Employment Supports, the youth:

  • Have no previous work experience: the youth has not held a job, where they were put on an employer’s payroll and received wages, for more than one week.

If the employer that the youth is matched with is also receiving a financial incentive related to the match, then the youth must also:

  • Be hired by a person who is not their immediate relative and,
