Better Jobs Ontario

After the completion of an initial assessment, an Employment Consultant can provide you with information about the services and training opportunities through the Better Jobs Ontario program, help you to pursue re-training for a new career and obtain financial support.
Effective April 29, 2022, the program expanded to better help people who may face challenges finding stable jobs such as gig workers, youth and people on social assistance.
