Completing the Circle (CTC) Program
The Completing the Circle (CTC) program provides employment placement for youth under 30 years old. CTC assists youth job seekers in their search for meaningful employment by providing them with individual support, so that they understand their skills, identify their place in the labour market, and recognize their potential contributions to employers. The CTC program is offered in Mississauga, West Toronto, and Hamilton.
