In Saskatchewan, the minimum age of employment is 16. If you are 14 or 15 years old, and able to work, you must complete the following before starting to work:
- Complete the YWRCC and obtain a Certificate of Completion;
- Provide your employer with a copy of your Certificate of Completion; and
- Provide your employer with proof of age and written consent from a parent or guardian.
Employers are required to keep a copy of the young worker’s Certificate of Competition, proof of age and consent from a parent or guardian on file.
If you are 14 or 15 years old and have completed the YWRCC, you will also need to be aware of the employment standard restrictions for 14 and 15 year olds which include:
- You cannot work after 10 p.m. the night before a school day;
- You cannot work before classes begin on a school day; and
- You cannot work more than 16 hours in a school week.
During school breaks such as Christmas holidays or summer vacation, these restrictions do not apply and you can work the same hours as other employees. All other employment standards apply to you.

Information: The CEMC Workshop in Computer Science for Young Women was designed to encourage young women considering computer science as a career for the first time. It is a unique opportunity designed to ignite enthusiasm for computer science in interested female students from across Canada who have had little or no previous exposure to computer science. The young women invited learn that computer science is about much more than using and programming computers. Through lectures, labs and hands-on activities, the workshop explores the foundations and applications of computer science that have a profound effect on the world today. Lasting friendships develop as participants stay in on-campus residences for one week and enjoy many social events.
Who: Female grade 9 and 10 students with an aptitude for mathematics attending a Canadian high school or middle school. Participants should not have attended any similar workshop.
Date: Saturday, May 14 to Saturday May 21, 2016 at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario.
Cost: There is a $150 registration fee to be paid after invited applicants have received their confirmation package.
- Accommodations, meals and other expenses for the week are included at no extra cost.
- Air fare expenses will also be paid by the CEMC.
Deadline: February 25, 2016
