Ontario Works

Ontario Works delivers financial and employment assistance to people in our community who are in need. The goal is simple - getting people back on the road to financial independence as quickly as possible.

People applying for, and those currently receiving Ontario Works, and who are employable are required to participate in the program. Voluntary participation by the disabled, and single parents with young children is encouraged.

The program is comprised of three components and the participants' path through these is tailored to their skills and capabilities.

Employment Supports - Equip participants with basic education, specific job skills, and experience to become "job ready".

Community Placement - Provides an opportunity for participants to update their skills, gain experience, and develop a network to get a job.

Employment Placement

- Matches job-ready participants to paid employment opportunities
