Employer Support Services

Three employers shaking hands

For more than 30 years, we have been supporting employers with their hiring and training needs. We understand how crucial it is to find, keep and train the right people for the job, and how costly and time consuming the recruitment process can be. If you are an employer looking to hire or train staff, we can help.

Through our Employer Support Services, we offer a number of options to support you in managing the needs of your workforce.

  • Post your jobs for free on our Job Board and in our Resource Centres
  • Use our meeting space to conduct interviews and job fairs
  • Have an Employment Consultant pre-screen resumes and refer qualified candidates based on your needs and the job requirements
  • Get up-to-date information on the local labour market, apprenticeship, employment standards, health and safety, and more

Getting new employees up to speed can be an expensive prospect. Training incentives are available to offset the initial training costs associated with a new employee. Funded by the Ontario government,these incentives are accessible to eligible individuals currently participating in a number of our employment programs.

Looking to provide training to your staff that will increase their skills? The Canada Ontario Job Grant (COJG) provides financial support to help Ontario employers develop their workforce through training. Check out our COJG page for more information.

Our experienced Employment Consultants can provide resources that will support you in navigating the apprenticeship process and link you to information on financial incentives for taking on apprentices, including tax credits and subsidies.
