The Better Jobs Ontario program (previously known as “Second Career”) provides eligible applicants with financial support and skills training for in-demand jobs. The program is geared to individuals who are laid-off, unemployed or who may face barriers to entering the labour market, including newcomers, people with disabilities, youth, gig workers and social assistance recipients.
You qualify for Better Jobs Ontario if you either:
- have been laid-off and have not been working or are working a temporary job just to cover costs
- have not been laid-off but have been unemployed for six months or longer and are part of a low-income household
You can still apply if you receive:
- Employment Insurance (EI)
- Ontario Works (OW)
- Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)
To register, please call or email us and sign up to attend a Better Jobs Ontario workshop.
