Reminder: Saskatchewan Youth Looking for Work Must Complete Course

Released on June 3, 2014

Saskatchewan youth aged 14 and 15 must successfully complete The Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course (YWRCC) and obtain a certificate in order to work over the summer and during the school year. 

The mandatory job readiness course teaches youth about their rights and responsibilities as it relates to health, safety and employment standards in the workplace.

“Inexperienced young workers have a higher risk of getting hurt on the job and are typically not aware of employer and employee expectations,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “This course provides valuable education about the basic rules for health and safety and fair treatment at work.”

All young workers (14 and 15 years old) must provide their employer with proof of age, written consent from a parent or guardian and a copy of their certificate.  Employers are also required to keep a copy of any young worker's certificate on file.

The current course can be taken online at www.lrws.gov.sk.ca/ywrcc.  You can also learn more about YWRCC at 1-800-667-1783.
