Partnership to Advance Youth Employment (PAYE)


Some of Toronto's leading companies want to invest in youth and are offering jobs to young candidates like you! If you are under 30 years of age, out of school and live in Toronto, do not miss your chance to connect with employment opportunities through PAYE.

PAYE offers youth many different types of opportunities including full-time, part-time or seasonal positions as well as paid internships or apprenticeships.


Youth Progress

In 2015 alone, over 1100 youth have been hired by some of Toronto's top employers through PAYE.

How PAYE Works for Youth


The PAYE Difference

PAYE is not just another job fair, networking event or career workshop. With PAYE, you get:

  • one-on-one career coaching
  • job preparation workshops specific to your goals
  • learning and networking events that connect you with employers and professional networks
  • access to jobs with career potential available only through PAYE

Getting Connected, Building Networks

Employers in various industries provide PAYE youth with entry and mid-level job opportunities. They also share their expertise and connect with youth at PAYE learning and networking events.

Some of the top employers and sectors that have worked with us include Starbucks Canada, RBC Royal Bank, TD Canada Trust, Scotiabank, Bank of Montreal, CIBC, Deloitte, Tridel, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium, The Retail Council of Canada and Landscape Ontario.
