The City of Ottawa is hiring students for at least 78 gigs this summer.

Applications opened earlier this month and close March 1, so there’s plenty of time left to get that dream job with the city, at least for a few weeks.

Here’s the eligibility requirements, via the city:

  • Be legally entitled to work in Canada.
  • Be 16 years of age or older by the first day of summer employment (For employment with the Ottawa Public Library and certain RCFS positions you must be 15 years of age or older).
  • Be enrolled in a secondary or post-secondary program or institution of higher learning on a full-time basis, returning to school or graduating that same year.
  • If a part-time student in university or college, your transcript must indicate that the course of study is leading you to a degree or diploma.

“If you are interested in taking on exciting challenges and making a difference in your community, explore our summer job opportunities in a wide range of fields,” the city says. Jobs are available in areas ranging from by-law enforcement to library & archives, finance, etc.

Most student jobs with the city pay $14 an hour.
