Finding a job in Toronto

WoodGreen helps nearly 10,000 job seekers each year!

If you need help finding a job, you are not alone. Every year, WoodGreen Community Services supports thousands of individuals who are unemployed or underemployed with their job search activities. We offer a range of friendly, personalized services, including one-on-one coaching, practical workshops and access to computers, fax machines and telephones - all for FREE.

We also offer special services for young people looking for work.
 

Are you a single mother in need of a good job, affordable housing, child care and more?


WoodGreen Community Services runs Homeward Bound, a special program for single mothers looking to improve their financial situation and leave poverty behind, forever.  Learn more about Homeward Bound, or about the success of the program.

For the past one year WoodGreen has been quite supportive in advancement of my career and I wanted to congratulate you for leading such a wonderful team.
