    Summer Company

    Through a program called Summer Company, you can get two things:

    start-up money to kick-off a new summer business
    advice and mentorship from local business leaders to help get the business up and running
    Learning how to run your own student business is one of the best summer jobs you can have. You get to be your own boss while learning what it takes to manage a business. Sales, marketing, invoicing, bookkeeping, customer relationship, management — these are just a few of the highly useful skills you will develop.

    You could be eligible, if you:

    go to high school, college or university
    live in Ontario
    are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
    are between 15-29 years old (if under 18: a parent needs to sign the application)
    are not already running a business
    are not working at another job or going to school for more than 12 hours a week during the program
    are returning to school after the program ends
    You cannot apply again, if you have received a Summer Company grant in the past.

    If you are on social assistance (Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program) you can still apply to Summer Company. Payments from the program may be exempt as income and assets under social assistance, so your monthly social assistance payment may not be affected.

    Call your local Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program office for more information.
