Successful applicants will have good communication and computer skills, basic repair & maintenance skills, be 19 years of age or older, and must have or be able to acquire a valid Firearms PAL/RPAL, ATV Safety, Tractor Safety and WHMIS.  “Food Safe” and “Serving it Right” tickets are assets and can be attained at a later date.
