This program, organized by TNO (The Neighbourhood Organization) is not for newcomers only, but may be of particular interest to them.

The program serves youth aged 15 to 29 who experience multiple and/or complex barriers to employment by providing more intensive supports beyond traditional job search and placement opportunities.

There is no official minimum level of English proficiency stipulated for this program. However, we are showing level CLB 3, because participants must be able to understand what is being said in the workshops, even if it requires the leader to speak slowly.

Program supports include:

  • 60 Hours Paid pre-employment training to promote job-readiness
  • Job matching and paid job placements, with placement supports for participants and hiring incentives for employers
  • Mentorship services
  • Education and work transitions support
  • Financial Support for Participants And Hiring Support for Employers
