Employment opportunities for people facing barriers
Ontario is partnering with leading financial institutions to create a $4 million fund aimed at increasing employment opportunities for people facing employment barriers.
“This pilot is a win-win scenario. It will help disadvantaged job seekers find opportunities for meaningful employment and connect small businesses with attractive financing terms and motivated employees. Together, we can create a culture of inclusion in our workplaces and a next generation economy for our province”, saidÂ Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
The Community Loans Fund will be available in spring 2016 in specific branches in pilot locations including London, Ottawa and Hamilton.
