SkillsAdvance Ontario Pilot

As part of the ministry’s work to modernize and transform Ontario’s employment and training services, the SkillsAdvance Ontario (SAO) pilot project is intended to support workforce development in identified key growth sectors.

It will fund partnerships that connect employers with the employment and training services required to recruit and advance workers with the right essential, technical, and employability skills. It will also support jobseekers to obtain employment by providing them with sector-specific employment and training services, and connecting them to the right employers.

SkillsAdvance Ontario embodies a sector-focused strategy that takes into consideration the dynamic nature of regional economies and labour markets, as well as the evolving requirements of different industrial sectors. SkillsAdvance Ontario projects will provide the ministry the opportunity to test the effectiveness and efficiencies of sector-focused, partnership-based programming.
