Youth Retail Programming


The goal of this free program is to provide students in Ottawa’s west end aged 15 to 19 with a volunteer experience in the retail industry, so they can acquire the skills and experience necessary to finding part-time employment in the future. Each year, the Job1 program places 16 youth from the PQCHC catchment area in work placements in retail stores in the west end of Ottawa.

Youth Retail Employment Program (YREP)

PQCHC offers Ottawa youth an opportunity to acquire necessary experience in retail through a paid 20 week work experience program. The Youth Retail Employment Program (YREP) partners with Bayshore and Carlingwood Shopping Centres and other west end retailers.
