If you "know" people I am sure you can get a job.

When i was working as a student of the custodial arts, they had an 8th grader working there. So I assume It might not be a problem.

I had a friend who when he was in Grammer school, worked as an ref for children's soccer games.

I did a local paper route from grade 5 to grade 10. I worked as a cousellor at a summer camp in grade 10. I also did the soccer reffing thing summers of grade 9 and grade 10. It's stressful, but the per-hour pay is pretty sweet. (like $15 for a 45 minute game)

With the paper route, the contract explicitly said that I was NOT an 'employee' of the company -- I was some other type of legal entity, which I don't remember. Point is, you can be employed at a younger age without being child labour.

edit-- Good thing too. Having to earn the money that's bought my computers, bicycles, guitar, keyboard, etc has really made me see the value of it.

15.

But what people generally think is strange is that age difference seems to be in no way as important over here as many other places.

When I was 15, I had a hell of a time even getting a call back, let alone an interview. As soon as I turned 16 though the job interviews came rolling in, and now one year later I still work at McDonalds.

For Ontario's minimum wage, check the table in the middle of the page.
http://www.gov.on.ca/LAB/english/es/...s/fs_wage.html

Basically, you'll be making $6.95 an hour, if your job is covered by the "Employment Standards Act", which you can check using the table on this page http://www.gov.on.ca/LAB/english/es/...s_covered.html

Also you will need a SIN number. If you don't have one, a employeer can't legally hire you. Make sure you get one ASAP.

MMMM, no wonder why my uncle force me to work at his store. He didn't hire me at all, I didn't even sign any papers. My uncle thinks that he can get away from the law, what a ignorant ****head.
