Additional Resources for Employers
Human Rights and the Duty to Accommodate
Learn what accommodating means, why it’s important to remove barriers, and the principles of accommodation. This e-learning module from the Ontario Human Rights Commission will help you stay informed.
Downsizing and Layoffs
Find out about programs that can benefit both employers and employees who are dealing with downsizing and layoffs.
Learn about partnership opportunities among employers, employer/employee associations and community organizations, and/or how you may be eligible to participate in an Ontario Labour Market Partnership.
The Ontario Job Creation Partnerships program (OJCP) allows job seekers to gain meaningful work experience to help them advance in their careers. Organizational sponsors create the work experience or project opportunity, and job seekers can select from available job opportunities that benefit them and the community. If you’re a business looking for support with developing a project for the Ontario Job Creation Partnerships program, complete the application form and a staff member from The Career Foundation will connect with you.
