Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations

Canadian Museums Association

YCW in Heritage Organizations (YCW-HO) is a job creation program under the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy that aims to provide summer work experience that students can build on. While employers gain access to a pool of enthusiastic young workers, students gain the opportunity to work in the field of culture and heritage while earning money for their education. This is a great opportunity for students and employers from coast to coast.
Student work terms last between 6 and 16 consecutive weeks with a regular work schedule of 30 to 40 hours per week. Salaries are competitive for the region of employment.
