About the Construction Connections Program
Are you interested in working in Toronto’s booming construction sector, but don’t know how to get started? Have you heard about the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit project and considered getting involved? The Construction Connections initiative may be for you!
Construction Connections is a joint initiative of Toronto Employment & Social Services (TESS) and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to connect historically disadvantaged job seekers to employment in the construction trade. The initiative supports Ontario’s Community Benefits Agreement, which brings together local government agencies, businesses and communities to help disadvantaged individuals obtain construction jobs on the Eglinton Crosstown L.R.T. corridor.
Overall, the objective of Construction Connections is to link job seekers to training and jobs in construction!
