Calling all Canadian students! The Government of Canada is hiring thousands to fill several student jobs for both part-time and full-time positions.
The Federal Student Work Experience Program provides ongoing student recruitment within different careers in the federal public service.
“As the country’s largest employer, we are proud to hire thousands of students every year to support us in delivering services to Canadians,” reads the Government of Canada website.
They offer a number of jobs across the country in fields like administration, agriculture, communications, enforcement, finance, IT, policy, and more.
These potential employees will have the chance to work in offices and laboratories, on ships and farms, at historical sites and national parks, just to name a few, according to the site.
Only those eligible will be able to apply. That means if you are a full-time high school, CEGEP, college, or university student, are returning to full-time studies in the next academic year, and meet the minimum age requirement, you’re set.
“Students who are in their final year of academic study and who are not intending to return to full-time studies are eligible to work part-time up until the time they graduate,” reads the site.
Salary ranges from $16 an hour to $34.59 an hour, according to the federal government.
It’s important to note that as this is an ongoing recruitment opportunity, your application will be placed in their student inventory.
That means that when there are more job openings, you may be contacted for a test or interview depending if your application matches the manager’s search, according to the site.
Both security clearance and student status will be conducted and verified before the job offer.
You never know what may fall on your lap if you don’t apply.

Good luck and happy applying!
