Developing diverse talent in the skilled trades sector


In response to the skilled trade worker shortages in Canada, WoodGreen has partnered with George Brown College to develop programs that help job seekers enter the trades. One program, the CNC/Precision Machining Skills Training Program, focused on recruiting women and LGBTQ2+ community members, promoting increased diversity within the sector.

Putting newcomer wellness at the heart of our service delivery


We remain committed to creating a Toronto where all are welcome. This year, we successfully piloted a newcomer well-being model, which places newcomer mental health and wellness at the centre of our service delivery model. This approach has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from newcomers accessing our services.
