We are able to provide funding for certain types of training, depending on your situation. If you’ve got the right skills and just need a particular piece of training, for example ProServe or Forklift Training, to meet the requirements of a job then we can support you. We can only support training courses that are no longer than two weeks long full time, or 6 weeks long part time. All training courses must lead directly to an employment offer or have been requested by an employer when a job offer is made.
Yes. We help you identify the skills you have that can be transferred into other fields, and then help you identify jobs that would be a good fit for you. We also have access to up-to-date labor market information that will give you the inside track on who is hiring now.
Everyone is different and it will depend on the type of support you need. Once you’ve registered, we’ll agree a schedule of appointments with you. On average we expect that you’ll communicate with us once a week. The Employment Ontario York program is currently accessible online to support you through this unprecedented time. You can speak to your Career Advisor via email, phone and Microsoft Teams.
