Call for nominations

February 26, 2016

Dear Employment Ontario Service Provider:

I am pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the 2016 Employment Ontario (EO) Leadership Awards has been posted to the Employment Ontario Partners’ Gateway (EOPG).

As many of you will recall, we introduced the awards last year to recognize the exceptional leadership that many of you have shown in the areas of innovation and collaboration to help improve services for EO clients. Your submissions made it clear that you are committed to providing the best possible employment and training services to Ontarians.

This year, we have introduced a new category – Customer Service. The Customer Service category is intended to recognize service providers who have provided an exemplary level of service that takes into account the unique challenges that face clients. Further details about the new category can be found on the EOPG.  

We want to hear about the great work you’ve done over the past year, so I encourage you to submit nominations.

The ministry will bring together a selection committee to determine the winners. Similar to last year, I will be joined by ministry representatives and leaders within the EO network. In the coming weeks, the members of the selection committee will be posted to the EOPG.

Please save May 2, 2016 for the award ceremony. If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact the EO Leadership Awards team at

I look forward to hearing about and celebrating your achievements. Please stay tuned for more information.


Thank you,
