Rural Summer Jobs Service

Congratulations to over 1500 rural employers who participated in the 2014 Rural Summer Jobs Service program (RSJS).

The goal of RSJS is to help rural employers create summer jobs that enhance the skills and work experience of students in Ontario.

The Government of Ontario provides a $2/hour hiring incentive to eligible rural employers who can create summer jobs for students between the ages of 15 and 30.

Since 2003, the Rural Summer Jobs Service program has helped rural employers create more than 46,000 summer jobs.

This program is part of the Ontario government's Ontario Summer Jobs Strategy to assist students across Ontario.

Information on future programming will be posted to this site during the winter/spring of 2015.
