Prime Minster Justin Trudeau held a Town Hall with Hundreds of YES Youth at the O4AY – “Opportunities for All Youth” event on June 27, 2018. O4AY is a coalition of Canadian employers including Starbucks Canada, Walmart, Tridel, The Source, Teleperformance and HMS Host who are working together to address the high youth unemployment rate and have set a target of hiring 40,000 youth who have barriers to employment. This wonderful initiative will work with organizations like YES and the City of Toronto’s PAYE program to fulfill its mandate and help change even more lives through employment.
