Ontario Top Employers

Top 25 Working Holiday Employers in Ontario

Every year taxback.com organises Canadian tax refunds for thousands of working holiday makers. As a result they can see which employers repeatedly hire these workers. This list has been compiled from that data, listing the top employers by province in ascending order – Thank you taxback.com!

In ON, the main cities are Toronto and Ottawa. As there are no ski resorts like Whistler or Banff here, the majority of the top working holiday maker (WHM) employers in ON are based in Toronto

Casual, summer/seasonal jobs will be relatively easy to come by as in other cities. Try all the local Starbucks and other cafes. Bars like Shoeless Joe’s in our list below and retail outlets like Sears are all regular employers of WHMs. For something a bit different and outdoorsy, try Mariposa Cruises or Centreville Amusement Park in Toronto Harbour.

If the city is just a bit too much for some of the more green fingered of you out there, Ontario’s vineyards are a great place to spend a summer picking grapes and there are plenty of other getaway resorts like Windermere House and Severn Lodge.

Finally, for any career or long-term jobs try the recruitment agents we have listed below as employers. Due to the strong links that these recruitment agents have with employers they manage the employers payroll services too.
