The province has launched its $295 million dollar Youth Jobs Strategy.
Premier Kathleen Wynne made the announcement in Cambridge but spoke to Newstalk 1010 afterwards.
This plan was an NDP budget ask and had already been promised in order to get the spring budget passed.
Wynne underlines this is a Liberal Jobs Strategy because it included more than what the NDP has asked for.
She says the strategy will be broken down into four parts: employment subsidies for employers, create opportunities for PhD and grad students, a focus on youth entrepreneurship and filling what she calls is skills gap in particular industries.
The Strategy is expected to create 30,000 job opportunities in Ontario. So far, it's helped 1,200 people find work. The province started accepting applications to this in September.
Recently, a Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives study found Ontario unemployment rates among the worst in the country. It revealed the rate of those between 15 and 24 was between 16 and 17.1 per cent. The average Canadian range of 13.5 to 14.5 per cent.
