Summer Employment for Nunavut Students (SENS)


The Department of Family Services is offering a work experience program for high school and post-secondary students – the Summer Employment for Nunavut Students (SENS) program.


The program targets employers in the private and non-governmental sectors, as well as hamlets, who want to hire youth for the summer. The program provides 50 per cent of the student’s hourly wage, up to $10 per hour. All students receive on-the-job training and mentorship to prepare them for future careers.


Youth must be between the ages of 15 and 30, and returning to school in the fall. The next program begins June 2017, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.


Students and/or employers interested in the program can contact Deatra Walsh, manager of labour market programs, at 867-975-5241 or at for an application package and more information.
