Collection and Use of Personal Information by Employment Opportunities System
You can search and view employment opportunities in EOS without revealing any information about yourself. If you register, the following information is required from you: name, contact information, email address, and other career related data. If you are a registered user, you may also post one resume to the site. The extent of the information that is collected when you post a resume depends on what you choose to place in your resume. At a minimum, if you post a resume, EOS will require that you provide your full name, address, postal code, phone number and email address. Your resume may contain additional information such as your experience, education, skills or any other information about yourself that you decide to provide.
At times, we may ask you to provide us with general information about you to assist us in meeting your various needs or to better understand your requirements, profiles, and experience. Additionally, the City of Toronto is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible environment where all employees and members of the public feel valued, respected and supported. We are dedicated to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the public and the communities in which we live and serve. The collection of diversity information is voluntary and is strictly confidential.
Use of Information
We use the information provided by you to:
- provide your resume and/or cover letter to employers / agencies when you apply to one of their job postings
- contact you directly by telephone or email to provide you with information related to employment and/or volunteer opportunities
- create/maintain a databank of searchable resumes for specific employment opportunities, used only by licensed staff of Toronto Employment and Social Services

You can access, update or edit your account at any time by logging in with your login/password. This includes changes to your registration information, resume(s), preferences and Job Alerts.
If at any time you would like your information and resume(s) removed from our site, you may do so by logging into your Candidate Profile, selecting “Settings” under your “Options” menu and clicking the “Delete Profile” button. However, employers for whose job posting you have applied, may already have obtained and retained a copy of your resume.
