Young Women in Public Safety - Student Employment Opportunity
Public Safety Canada, in collaboration with its portfolio agencies, will again this year hold the Young Women in Public Safety (YWPS) Program – Student Employment Opportunity
This unique program has been created to introduce high school female students to diverse and exciting employment opportunities available in the realm of public safety and security. Through this program, we hope to inspire young women to take a leadership role in their communities and pursue a meaningful and exciting career in areas of public safety such as border security, corrections, correctional investigation, probation and parole, information and intelligence, and policy development. Note that the priority will be given to grade 10/secondaire 4 (Quebec) or grade 11 (other provinces) students
Applications for the program must be submitted through the poster on the Federal Student Work Experience (FSWEP) website: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-service-commission/jobs/services/recruitment/students/federal-student-work-program.html
