The Summer Experience Program (SEP) provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, municipalities, Indigenous organizations and First Nation communities in order to create meaningful summer employment opportunities for students.
SEP positions must focus on activities supporting key sectors within the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, including citizenship, voluntarism, seniors, women, tourism, culture, sport and recreation and offer training for future careers or work experience in skills transferable to the general workforce.
Position placements are expected to provide full time employment for a minimum of 217.5 hours or 30 days at 7.25 hours per day. Overtime on an occasional basis is allowed, but SEP funding does not cover this cost.
See SEP Program Guidelines for detailed program criteria for summer employment.
