Summer Company is delivered by the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario and is aimed at helping young people between 15 and 29 years old start and run their own summer business by providing funding, advice and services.

Youth accepted into the program receive $3,000 towards building their summer business, plus training and mentorship to set them on the road to success. Adam Simonini, who built his website design company Creative Designs Toronto through the Summer Company program in 2017, explained the value of the program. “Summer Company helped me stay focused and motivated and confident that I was doing something good for myself.”
