As part of Ontario's Youth Jobs Strategy, the Youth Employment Fund (YEF) offers young job seekers access to FREE training and PAID hands-on work experience.

If you are unemployed, not in school full-time and under 30 years old, YEF will help connect you with an employer and get a paid job placement of four to six months.

YEF will provide incentives to employers to help cover the cost of wages and training for new hires and help youth cover costs like transportation or tools required for the job. The job placement will help you build skills and confidence, get valuable work experience and make great connections with employers.

The employer providing your placement may receive an incentive of up to $6,800 to help cover the cost of your wages and training.

You can apply on-line on our home page at; you can call (613) 546-5559 and make an appointment; you can come to a weekly information session or you can drop into the Employment Resource Centre at any KEYS location.
