Summer 2017 Employment Opportunities in the Ontario Public Service

The following is information regarding the 2017 Summer Employment Opportunities recruitment initiative. I encourage you to share this information with students within your locality.

The Summer Employment Opportunities (SEO) program provides up to 5,000 students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience through supervised summer employment in the Ontario Public Service.

These positions enable students across the province to gain valuable work experience and develop skills which are transferable to the labour market. Positions for summer 2017 will be posted on January 3, 2017 with six different closing dates between January 17 and March 28.
