Now Is The Time For Montrealers To Find The Best Summer Jobs & Here Are Some Available Now
  • MTL Blog has decided to make a list of potential summer jobs in Canada for the people who like to plan their life out early on.
  • The best part of each job on this list is that you get the opportunity to work outside!
  • Check out potential job options for summer 2020 below!

There are a million reasons to look into summer jobs early on. Maybe you're a teacher and want to make some extra bank during your months off. Or you're a student who's summer internship is unpaid, so you know you'll need to compensate by getting another job. Or summer is your time to save money so that you can chill during the rest of the year. Whatever your reason, MTL Blog has got you covered with ideas for summer jobs in Canada.

With the cold weather that we're currently experiencing, we all can't help but dream of warmer days. And honestly, with warmer weather comes cooler job opportunities.

This list of summer jobs ranges from working in an amusement park to travelling to different Canadian provinces to work on a farm or plant trees. Although the jobs vary, what all the ones I've listed have in common is the fact that you get to work outside! Since we only get warm weather for 3 or 4 months in Canada, working outside during the summer is the best way to take advantage of such.

So, without further or do, here are some options of summer job opportunities around Canada that Montrealers can apply for!

Become Part Of The La Ronde Staff

Working for La Ronde seems like something most Montrealers have done at least once in their life. From what I've heard, it's an awesome place to work with a lot of opportunities to move up and get raises if you work there for more than one summer.

There are numerous job opportunities here that don't require past experiences, ranging from cashier to ride operator to kitchen staff. The season begins in early May and goes until October.
