Ontario Investing $295M In Youth Jobs Srategy

Ontario’s new Youth Employment Fund aims to provide young people with an entry point to long-term employment through job placements that offer the chance to learn work skills while earning income. The fund will help employers offer four-to six-month job and training placements for young people seeking work. Ontario will provide up to $7,800 to cover a range of supports and services for each eligible young worker under the fund. That includes up to $6,800 to help employers cover wages and training costs, and up to $1,000 to help young workers pay for job-related costs like tools and transportation to work. Placements can start immediately. For more information, contact VPI Inc., 843 King Street West, Unit # 9, Oshawa at (905) 571-3301.
