Youth Employment Opportunities: Parks Canada – Youth Employment Opportunities 2021

The Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS) is a Federal Government jobs initiative targeted at young Canadians aged 15 to 30. It supports the creation of job opportunities, with a particular focus on young people facing barriers.   The purpose is to increase employment for youth, enabling them to gain work experience, to develop skills, and to extend their networks.  Parks Canada is really excited to participate in this initiative, and youth can make a difference in our national parks, national historic sites and our sites across Canada! Parks Canada is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace by embracing this initiative, and encourages applications by youth facing barriers to employment, in particular Indigenous, visible minorities, and persons with disabilities.

As a result, we are looking for your help to connect with students and youth who would be a good fit for the program and help us achieve our goals of assisting youth with their employment goals. Please see the attached poster and program information document for more specifics about the program and eligibility criteria.
