Local students searching for a summer job are getting some financial help from Ottawa.
Local MP’s John Brassard and Alex Nuttall announced today 1.35 million dollars in Canada Summer Jobs funding.
Brassard says the program is a great way for students to gain valuable work experience.
The money will help create 485 jobs in the Barrie-Oro Medonte areas.
A similar funding announcement was made yesterday involving Innisfil and surrounding area.
