October is Workforce Development Month
Throughout October, we will be hosting activities for job seekers and employers as well as events to showcase some of the City's initiatives and partnerships with employers and community partners.
The City of Toronto is helping people find jobs and helping employers 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.
The City's Workforce Development Strategy addresses the needs of employers and helps residents get jobs. Our achievements are highlighted in the 2016 Workforce Development Annual Report with a focus on how we are meeting the needs of our customers. This report also communicates key directions and initiatives for 2017.
