The Department of Family Services offers the Summer Employment for Nunavut Students work experience program for high school and post-secondary students.

The program targets employers in the private and non-governmental sectors, as well as hamlets, who want to hire youth for the summer.

The program provides 50 per cent of the student’s hourly wage, up to $10 per hour, depending on funding availability. All students receive on-the-job training and mentorship to prepare them for future careers.

To qualify, youth must be between the ages of 15-30 and returning to school in the fall.

Students and/or employers interested in the program can contact their local career development officer for an application package.
