A reminder for specialty crop growers that the 2013 Ontario Rural Summer Jobs Service is now accepting applications from eligible employers who plan to create summer jobs for students in Rural Ontario. Eligible businesses and community organizations in Rural Ontario may receive a hiring incentive of $2 per hour to create student employment.
What qualifies as a RURAL business?
