Ontario is moving forward with its next round of Youth Jobs Strategy consultations at East Scarborough Storefront/The Point. Community youth organizations and non-profit leaders joined MPP Hunter today to advise the government on ways to increase job opportunities for young people and to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation.
Ontario’s 2013 Budget introduced the government’s Youth Jobs Strategy to help more youth find jobs or start their own businesses, while helping employers find the skilled workers they need to thrive in the global economy.
The Ontariogovernment is investing $295 million over two years in the strategy. This will support employment opportunities for about 30,000 young people, while promoting innovation and entrepreneurship as valuable career options. Helping youth succeed in a 21st-century economy is part of the newOntariogovernment’s plan to build a prosperous and fair province.
