Free Virtual Workshops

Working solutions for individuals and organizations

We provide employment programs, assessments and supportive vocational services that help residents of Ontario improve job readiness, explore training and get back to work.

As a service provider for the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD), we facilitate several Employment Ontario programs to help job seekers find work and training opportunities. We also work directly with employers who are looking to hire. These programs and services are free for job seekers and employers as they are funded by the government of Ontario and, in part, by the Government of Canada.

Have all the latest information on jobs and events delivered directly to your inbox.
