Transformation of Employment and Training Services

Employment and Training Programming Opportunities

The opportunities and initiatives outlined on this site support the government's commitment to transform employment and training services. This initiative builds on the recommendations from the 2012 Commission on the Reform of Ontario's Public Services (Drummond Commission), which identified opportunities to improve employment and training services through integration.

The provincial government is modernizing and transforming  Ontario's employment and training programs and services. This will improve access and provide job seekers and employers with proven, coordinated and targeted services that meet their needs.

We are working to enhance and simplify access to a wider range of programs and services by:

  • aligning with labour market needs and evidence of what works; and,
  • targeting resources towards individuals who need them the most.

Our goal is better employment outcomes for job seekers and a simpler employment and training system for Ontarians and employers.

To support this transformation, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities is launching a number of new initiatives that will provide critical insights and create new partnerships to inform the future development of the employment and training system. The initiatives identified here will help us to test, evaluate and refine our approaches along the way.
