As the school year comes to an end for high school and university students across Toronto, they may be wondering if they'll be able to find a summer job. But the government of Canada is implementing a program that should help make the search easier.
Diane Finley, minister of human resources and skills development, recently announced that 36,000 jobs had been created under the Canada Summer Jobs program.
"Our government has received a strong mandate from Canadians to continue creating jobs and economic growth, said Finley. "That's why, starting in 2011, we have permanently increased the budget for Canada Summer Jobs by $10 million."
Finley went on to say that the program benefits students as it gives them some spending money for the summer and helps them fund their tuition costs for the upcoming school year.
Meanwhile, as Toronto students work on finding a job, they may want to rent out a storage unit to store important papers and documents for the fall. Portable storage containers can also be beneficial.
