Looking to hire, upskill your staff, access government incentives, or post Oakville, Burlington, Brantford, Niagara and Hamilton jobs? We can help.

Government Incentives

Hiring incentives

Let us help you find employees, receive job-seeking client referrals from us!  Our clients come to us with diverse education, and backgrounds.  If you are willing to hire and train a client on the job, we will evaluate the skills gap to determine funding.  For employers in the registered trades, we can provide an added apprenticeship signing bonus of $2000 if you hire our clients!


Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG)

Receive a training grant to train or upgrade your existing staff (or a new hire through our service).  The grant provides up to $15,000 per employee to cover tuition, textbooks, exams, and travel.  The employer sponsors the training and commits 1/3 of the training costs necessary and the Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities (MTCU) covers 2/3 the costs.  Individual businesses and organizations can apply for this funding directly.
