Nestlé Canada Youth Initiative


Nestlé Canada’s Youth Initiative is designed to help young Canadians fulfill their ambitions and positively contribute to the growth for the Canadian market and Nestlé.

Over the next three years we will offer more than 5,000 young Canadians the opportunity to develop their professional skills, increase their employability and expand their network.

The Youth Initiative is a multifaceted program that will provide jobs and training opportunities in addition to ‘readiness for work’ activities for young adults, across Nestlé Canada.

The Youth Initiative Program consists of four pillars:

Get support
Don’t know where to begin? Need help? Take advantage of our networking events, career counselling, information sessions and recruitment workshops at universities and colleges career to choose a good path for you and get the job you want.

We’re also partnering with Queen’s University to sponsor a national business case competition across Canadian universities and colleges; the 16 top team finalists will have an opportunity for a job interview at Nestlé and the winning team members will receive paid internships.

Get skilled

We’re increasing internship opportunities by 25% over three years across all Nestlé Canada businesses. Internships offer youth an opportunity to gain work experience and strengthen their professional development. That’s how we can also help youth build a brighter future.

Get hired

We’re increasing new grad hires by 5% across all Nestlé Canada businesses through entry level positions and formalized training programs, including our operational management and cross-functional trainee programs. Whatever your educational background – marketing, finance, engineering, research and development – wherever in Canada, Nestlé needs YOU.

Get more opportunities

We’re reaching out to our partners to encourage them to open their doors and create even more work opportunities for young adults across Canada.
