Youth Job Link (YJL)

If you are between 15 and 29 years old, in school or not, you can get information and help connecting with employers for job opportunities that match your skills and interests.

Get help with:

  • Career exploration

  • Career management

  • Job search

  • Workplace readiness

Youth Job Link is designed to help youth, including students, aged 15 to 29, who do not face significant barriers to employment, but who could benefit from some extra help to plan their careers and transition to the labour market.

The program is integrated into the Employment Service (ES) Resource and Information component, but features expanded, youth-focused offerings.

It provides three categories of non-intensive employment services, each of which is available year-round. They are:

  • Career exploration services to increase knowledge of career options and support career decision-making;

  • Career management services to improve readiness for the labour market; and,

  • Job search, readiness and matching assistance to connect youth with employers offering employment opportunities, including summer jobs.
