Ministers David Piccini and Jill Dunlop invite you to promote the Ontario Parks student recruitment campaign. Ontario Parks is the largest employer of students in the province with over 1,800 students from Ontario’s Summer Employment Opportunities Program. This summer, there are between 1500-2000 open student positions at Ontario Parks across the province. Applications are now being accepted and applicants are encouraged to submit their resumes.
For the first time ever, we are advertising in six different languages across Ontario. Thank you to the many caucus members who have volunteered to film a short video promoting this great youth opportunity.
Today, Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, was joined by Mathew Rae, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Education and Charmaine Williams, Associate Minister of Women’s Social and Economic Opportunity, to announce our government’s implementation of a new, mandatory, technological education credit requirement for graduation to help better prepare students across our province for the jobs of tomorrow.
Beginning in 2024, this new graduation requirement is another step forward ensuring students learn the critical skills necessary to succeed.
This builds on Premier Ford and Minister Lecce’s recent announcement to create a direct path from grade 11 into apprenticeship – creating an accelerated pathway to a good paying job.
Our government is working to ensure Ontario students graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. This will also help to ensure that Ontario remains a leader in innovation and technology for years to come.
