Services for Employers
• Community Employment Services
The goal of Employer Services is to connect employers, willing to provide on-the-job training including apprenticeship training and work experience opportunities, with individuals eager and ready to be trained and to become fully productive members of the workforce.
• Canada-Ontario Job Grant
An opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce
The governments of Canada and Ontario have invested in a program to support employer training needs. The Canada-Ontario Job Grant program provides direct financial support to employers to purchase training for their employees. The program covers two-thirds of training costs for a maximum government contribution of $10,000.00 per participant including tuition and training materials. Employers are responsible for contributing the remaining one-third.
• Youth Employment Fund
Participating employers receive wage and training incentives to hire youth who are pre-screened candidates.
• Summer Jobs Service
Participating employers receive a wage subsidy and access to students who are ready and willing to work in the summer.
• Pre-Apprenticeship Training
Mohawk College offers Pre-Apprenticeship trades training funded by the Government of Ontario.
