Got a Job but need money now!

A photo of matt12345 matt12345
Hi guys,

I'm a post secondary student and I am fortunate to have found a full-time job for the whole summer break. Only problem is that I have to supply myself with my own equipment, totaling to about $1500.

I don't want to dig too deep into my pockets for this job, as I don't know if it will pay off so well. Do you guys know of any government grants and such that can help people pay for equipment expenses?

thanks!

Hey, it's forestry work so I'll be needing all the safety equipment/clothing and a clearing saw.

I've done similar work before, and on our tax forms we are put down as private contractors, if that has anything to do with it.

Do you know of anyways I can get funding for this? I looked up things like Loans for Tools by the Ministry of Training and the Summer Company program but I don't think I quality for either.

If you have any leads that would be great.
