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. 

For up-to-date Workforce Development events and announcements, visit our events calendar and follow us on Twitter @TorontoESS. Join the conversation with the hashtag #workoneTO.
