Summer Company, a program of the Government of Ontario, helps young entrepreneurs between the ages of 15 and 29 start and run their own summer business by providing funding, advice and services.

In place of a summer job, students have the opportunity to be their own boss. All that’s required is a good summer company idea, a detailed business plan, commitment and hard work. In return, students receive hands-on training from successful business people, financial support up to $3,000, and the opportunity to find out if they have what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

The Summer Company program is now closed. Applications for 2022 will be available here next year.
