Ontario Parks is hiring students for summer 2024!

Ontario Parks protects ecologically important spaces throughout Ontario – from the shores of Lake Erie up to the boreal forests of Northern Ontario. It takes lots of people working together to preserve these spaces while welcoming visitors from Ontario and beyond.

This summer, adventure within Ontario’s forests, beaches, rivers, and lakes while gaining job skills and experience!

Whatever your interest, there’s a role for you at Ontario Parks!

Every park requires a team effort to ensure parks become a better place for fantastic opportunities to view wildlife and connect with nature. These experiences would not be if it weren’t for the students that work at Ontario Parks each year.

Ontario Parks offers a friendly and inclusive environment with tons of outdoor adventure opportunities. Learn new skills, make new friends, and advance your career all while getting paid to do it!
