Youth in Ontario have an exciting opportunity to learn, work and make a difference, both this summer and beyond, through rewarding positions in natural resource management. In 2009, the province is supporting over 2,100 jobs in natural resource management through a number of programs, including:

Ontario Ranger, Ontario Stewardship Ranger, Ministry of Natural Resources Internship

Post-secondary Co-op  and First Nations Natural Resources Youth Employment (in partnership with Confederation College)  

Through these and additional programs – such as Summer Experience, Ontario Internship, Aboriginal Youth Work Exchange and the Internship Program for Internationally Trained Professionals – the province is providing youth of all ages, skill levels and educational backgrounds the opportunity of a lifetime.

By providing youth with engaging experiences and valuable skills in natural resource management, the province is helping develop the green economy leaders of tomorrow.
