How to Apply - Returning Students

Your job performance from the previous year and the needs of York Region will be considered in your application.


Interview Process

Only students selected for an interview will be contacted.

York Region will conduct interviews either in person or via webcam between January and April. You will be asked for the contact information of two references (supervisors, teachers, professors, or volunteer coordinators).

Successful candidates will need to prove that they are enrolled in school full time and returning full time. Some documents you can use are:

  • A registrar’s letter confirming enrollment and academic eligibility for the current and next school year
  • A letter or screen shot confirming your anticipated graduation date
  • A letter or screen shot showing you have more credits to complete
  • A letter or screen shot showing your registration for the current year with a letter or screen shot confirming your application to a future school for the following year

Successful candidates will receive both a verbal and written job offer.
