Job Posts in Canada: Young Canada Works edition

As usual, this year’s collection of YCW jobs’ salaries are on the underwhelming side, and the general restrictions apply: you must be a returning full-time student, or, in some cases, a recent graduate of a university degree. But they’re good experience for those without any, and can often be supplemented with other work for the remainder of the summer. There are also a few jobs from the provincial-equivalent programs, such as the Summer Experience Program in Ontario.
