Seasonal & Casual Opportunities:

Applications for seasonal and casual employment may be submitted at any time of the year. Submitted applications are reviewed by the departments considering hiring. An application is valid from the date of submission to December 31st of the current year.

Public Works Department:

Public Works consideration for new unionized seasonal employees occurs on an as-needed basis during the year. The Public Works Department has generally been able to cover its labour requirements with returning employees. There have been limited new hires each year since 2001, this is expected to continue for the current year. Any entry-level terms are generally 16 weeks in length per year.

Non-unionized casual employment (flaggers, street marking painters, etc.) is summer-oriented, starting in late April/early May. Again, the Public Works Department generally rehires employees. There have been limited opportunities to bring on new staff in recent years, the current season is not expected to be different. Flagger position is the most common need, applicants must have completed a Signalers Certification (traffic flagger course). 

Sustainability Department:

Seasonal and contract staff are hired in the Sustainability Department to support numerous environmental and urban forestry initiatives. These positions will support sustainability programs, environmental events, nature education, and management, the street and park tree inventory, and the Tree Protection and Cosmetic Pesticide Bylaws. Positions start in the spring and the length of positions varies.

Parks and Recreation Department:


High School and University students are advised to submit their applications early in the calendar year, as management within Parks and Recreation reviews applications for spring/summer employment as early as March. Parks Maintenance positions are filled by the end of April. Most summer program positions are filled by mid-May.

Casual part-time employment with Fall and Winter Programs such as program leader, canteen workers, security work, etc are usually filled by early September.

Seasonal Workers

Most seasonal work is available either through the park's operations or arenas operated by the City of Charlottetown. Those interested in seasonal work with the City should apply (or reapply) early in the calendar year to ensure that, as workweeks are made available, an up-to-date application is on hand with the latest contact information. Most seasonal employees start work in early May for the spring/summer season and in September for the Fall/Winter season.
