Young Canada Works

The components of the Youth Employment Strategy that relate to official languages are Young Canada Works in Both Official Languages and Young Canada Works at Building Careers in English and French. Both are contained in the Community Life component of the Development of Official-Language Communities Program. The aim is to advance the skills and hands-on experience of young participants while encouraging their participation in the development of official-language minority communities.

  • Young Canada Works in Both Official Languages aims to provide summer employment to students in their field of study in a second official language or in an official-language minority community where they will be able to use their first language.
  • Young Canada Works at Building Careers in French and English aims to provide students with internships to acquire hands-on experience and build advanced skills to make the transition to Canada's language-based industries or the general Canadian labour market.
