WHO’S HIRING: Time running out to apply for Ontario Parks summer student jobs



Are you looking to both spend time outdoors and work this summer? Then the Province of Ontario may have something for you, but time is running out to apply.

Each summer, the provincial government has thousands of summer student jobs available.

The application deadline has closed on most of them, except for the province’s positions at Ontario Parks, with positions available in English and bilingual English and French positions.

The application deadline for the Ontario Parks jobs is Saturday, June 1.

Jobs are available at various provincial parks, including multiple jobs at Algonquin Provincial Park, as well as provincial parks in Huntsville, Penetanguishene, Orillia, Oakville, Blue Mountain, Bowmanville, Alliston, Omemee, Kirkland Lake, Windsor, Kemptville, Thorold, Pointe Au Baril, Wasaga Beach and many other places across Ontario.

The Ontario Parks jobs pay between $16.55 and $17.40 per hour and have a work period of six to 18 weeks between May and September.

Roles could include gate attendant, maintenance worker, park store clerk, administrative assistant, discovery ranger and more.

“Spend your summer working outside and connecting with nature, all while doing meaningful work that contributes to protecting the environment and helping park visitors,” a job posting on the government of Ontario website states.

Job hopefuls must be at least 15 year old. To qualify for a student position, you must be enrolled in a secondary or post-secondary school (currently or for the fall semester) or you must have graduated within the past six months.
