Employment Essentials programs can help you prepare for employment, self-employment or career advancement. They focus on career options, career and life skills, and aim to bring you closer to your goals.

Program/training participants receive $250/month for employment-related expenses plus $142/month for transportation during the core program.  When the core program is finished, the transportation amount will continue for a period of time, determined by the length or type of program.

Please speak to your Ontario Works caseworker if you are interested in any of these programs/courses, as a referral is required. Referrals are based on your Employment Service Plan, jointly developed between you and your caseworker, considering your needs, qualifications, education, career goal, and course suitability/course availability.
