Hunting for work can be tough, especially if you're just starting out in the workforce. Finding entry-level jobs in Ontario that pay above minimum wage is no easy feat. Luckily for you, though, the Government of Canada has a few that may be just what you're looking for.

It's worth noting that some of these jobs aren't exactly glamorous. Some of these also require you to be a student to apply. However, if you don’t mind a steady grind for a good paycheque, these jobs are worth it.

The best part is that many of the positions below will pay you over $14 an hour, which is Ontario's general minimum wage. One of them has an hourly rate of up to $27.73 an hour.

Take a look at this list of jobs to find a good fit for you. They may not come with six-figure salaries, but they're a foot in the door to great career opportunities.
