The Government of Saskatchewan is the largest student employer in the province, hiring nearly 1,000 students annually. A variety of great summer jobs are available including delivering programs and services in government offices, building and repairing highways, and maintaining our beautiful provincial parks – to name only a few!
A 'student' must be:
- Legally entitled to work in Canada; and
- Attending school on a full-time basis and returning to school on a full-time basis in the next academic semester.
"Full-time" shall be defined by the educational institution the student is attending and proof of student status may be requested.
Priority is given to students currently attending post-secondary over current high school students.
Students may be rehired into a similar position if they worked for the Government of Saskatchewan the previous year. Rehires must meet all eligibility requirements and must have been employed as a student in the previous year.
The 2023 Summer Student Program is no longer receiving applicants. New applications for the 2024 Summer Student Program will be posted this upcoming October.
