The City of Toronto is helping people find jobs and helping companies secure the skilled employees they need. Our Workforce Development Strategy has three key objectives: ensuring that employers' workforce needs are addressed, ensuring that unemployed city residents get access to opportunities and jobs, and delivering the best possible value to employers, job seekers, communities and the City for the resources invested in workforce development.
Workforce Development Month is coming up in October. Throughout this month, we'll be holding events for job seekers and showcasing some of the City's initiatives and partnerships with employers and community partners.
Visit our events calendar regularly for Workforce Development Month event information. Follow us on Twitter @TorontoESS for announcements and updates.
For Newcomers and Internationally Trained Professionals. Explore bridging and post-secondary programs that help advance/achieve employment goals, obtain information on employment and related resources, participate in networking opportunities and an information marketplace, and hear from successful newcomers, educators and employers.
