McGuinty Government Turning Employment Ontario Into One-Stop System

Ministry of Colleges and Universities

Employment Ontario is beginning changes that will allow Ontarians to find the employment and training programs they need in one location.

Over the next six months, changes will result in:

  • better service for Ontarians,
  • shorter wait times and
  • faster and more efficient access to career training.

Under the current system, someone seeking assistance with resume writing, career counseling and a job search could have to visit three separate locations to access these services.  By August, 2010, all Employment Ontario offices will offer a one-stop approach to training and employment services - eliminating the need for visits to separate locations.   During the transition, there will be no disruption to services.   

A complete list of Employment Ontario service locations will be available on the ministry's website and through the Employment Ontario hotline at 1-800-387-5656 in early August. 

Quick Facts

  • Employment Ontario provides training and job search assistance to more than one million Ontarians each year.
