Ontario employers looking for summer help can tap into a provincial program that helps place students in summer jobs.

The province said it will help more than 57,000 young people find jobs or start their own businesses through the Ontario Summer Jobs program.

Opportunities exist for businesses and community organizations to get a $2 per hour wage subsidy to hire students for up to 16 weeks. The program also provides students with up to $3,000 to help them start up and run their own summer businesses.
