Partnership to Advance Youth Employment (PAYE)

Mayor's Employment and Jobs Reception

On March 25, 2015 Mayor John Tory hosted a group of employers and industry leaders at City Hall to talk about youth unemployment and his commitment to grow the City's Partnership to Advance Employment (PAYE) as one way to address this issue.

Mayor Tory took the opportunity to thank employers for engaging in conversations about youth unemployment, for their anticipated participation in PAYE this year and for showing the kind of leadership that helps revitalize communities, transform lives and bring it all full circle.

It was an inspiring evening where PAYE partners were acknowledged and one of our PAYE alumni, Beatrice, shared the positive impacts this program has had on her career.

Stephen Diamond, President and CEO of Diamond Corp., was recognized for his outstanding contributions, leadership and dedication to PAYE. He was named first recipient of the annual PAYE Leadership Award.
