The Ontario government is making it easier for people to restart their careers and support their families through the creation of an integrated and seamless employment services system. The new system will combine employment programs from social assistance, such as Ontario Works Employment Assistance and Ontario Disability Support Program Employment Supports, into Employment Ontario. This modernized approach will ensure clients have continued access to the services they rely on while helping them succeed in their search for long-term and sustainable employment.

Jobseekers will be offered services that are specifically tailored to connect them with jobs in their communities, including job searching, job matching and job coaching support. A wide range of services and opportunities will also be available for employers to help them find workers and coordinate training.
