LOOKING FOR WORK
Helping Ontarians Find Work
The goal of Employment Ontario Employment Service is to help Ontarians find sustainable employment. It bridges the gap between employers seeking workplace skills and human resources to meet their business needs and individuals seeking employment.
Employment Service can offer you resources, supports and services to respond to career and employment needs of individuals as well as your office or service needs and it can help these individuals on a path to higher skill training and employment.
If you’re seeking the skills and human resources that you need to achieve your business goals, then you may be eligible to receive financial incentives to offset the cost of providing work experience opportunities, including apprenticeship training, skill level assessments for participants and wage subsidy.
We want to help you get the training, skills and experience to help you achieve your goals. We also want to connect people looking for work with employers looking for workers.
