2018 Summer Experience Program

The Summer Experience Program provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, municipalities, Indigenous organizations and First Nation communities, to create career-related summer employment opportunities for students.

SEP positions must focus on activities supporting key sectors within the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Ministry of the Status of Women and Ministry of Seniors Affairs, including citizenship, voluntarism, seniors, women, tourism, culture, sport and recreation. Summer student positions should offer training for future careers or work experience in skills transferable to the general workforce.

Please review the Summer Experience Program Guidelines and Terms and Conditions for information on the various Ministry priorities, to assess your organization’s eligibility and to familiarize yourself with the specific program criteria for hiring a summer student.

All applications must be submitted online, in either English or French through Grants Ontario.

The deadline to apply for the 2018 Summer Experience Program is Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
