Employment & Social Services

About Us

Employment and Social Services provides employment supports, financial benefits and social supports to people living in Toronto. Our Employment Centres are open to all Toronto residents, and our staff provide a range of services including helping people with:

• finding a job or the training they need to find work,
• accessing financial benefits available through the Ontario Works program, and
• connecting to health, housing, childcare and other social services.

Our vision is to strengthen the social and economic well-being of Torontonians in their communities. By providing employment services, financial benefits and social supports, we work to make that vision a reality. We are committed to engaging and working closely with clients, employers, community partners and staff to make sure we are meeting the needs of the communities we serve.
