Partnership to Advance Youth Employment (PAYE)


Oscar's PAYE story

As a newcomer to Canada, Oscar found the job search process to be completely different than what he expected. He knew there were jobs out there but didn’t know how to reach them or where to start. When he heard about PAYE, he wasn’t sure that it was the help he was looking for. He started working with his coach and after a few meetings, discovered a new world of opportunities. He learned the skills and information he needed to find a job and was connected to employers through PAYE. PAYE helped him get his first job in Canada and he is thankful for this opportunity to get a foot in the door.

“I found a job at Starbucks within the first month of joining has been a priceless experience.”
