Summer Positions

A- A A+

Are you looking to earn money during the summer months? OPG offers a limited number of job opportunities across the province for Summer students.

We hire post-secondary students for a variety of roles, either related to their field of study, or in custodial, administrative or labourer positions. Although these types of jobs may not relate directly to academic studies, they are a great way to earn a competitive wage in the summer, and get to know OPG.

There are many benefits to being a Summer student at OPG, including:

  • the opportunity to learn about the variety of positions available at OPG;
  • a closer look at the Skilled Trades and Engineering positions at OPG so you can determine if this is the right career path for you;
  • learning from some of the best in the business; and
  • an opportunity for OPG to consider you as a potential candidate for future full-time employment.

Our Selection Process

A Summer student position could be advertised in a community newspaper or posted at a nearby First Nation Friendship Centre. Interviews are held at the work site.

In more urban areas, Summer student positions are typically advertised online. Since there may be as many as 1,500 applicants to a position, the successful candidate may be selected via a lottery process rather than a typical interview process.

To learn about applying for a Summer position at OPG, carefully review our Application Process.

If you would like to find out more about how we recruit for Summer student positions, check our Calendar of Events and meet with us in person at a campus near you.

Making A Difference In Our Community

Our Student Program is designed to build OPG’s educational and community relationships. As such, a number of our Summer student positions are reserved to provide employment for financially disadvantaged students from local high schools with whom we partner.
