Refugee Resettlement Program

Employment Assistance


Toronto Employment and Social Services (TESS) is working with community and other partners to identify opportunities to address the employment needs of incoming refugees. This includes mobilizing existing employment supports and working with community agencies and corporate partners to ensure access to employment and training opportunities.

Employment Centre (EC) Portal

Toronto Employment and Social Services (TESS) has introduced a new Employment Centre Portal. It can be used to view, learn about and register for Employment Centre workshops offered by TESS locations across the city. The Portal also allows users to self-register for any job and community information fair hosted by TESS and other City divisions.

Local Employment Centres

For more information on specific job search and employment supports visit a local Employment Centre. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday with extended hours twice a week. All offices are closed on statutory holidays. Some locations offer services en français.
