Temporary Help Agency and Recruiter Licensing Framework

The government has released a consultation paper on a proposed Temporary Help Agency (THA) and Recruiter Licensing Framework and welcomes feedback from stakeholders, including Employment Ontario service delivery partners, by December 6, 2022. Feedback will inform the development of regulations under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) that will prescribe the features of the framework, such as details related to various aspects of licensing. As you may be aware, the ESA was recently amended by the Working for Workers Act, 2021 to create the THA and recruiter licensing framework.

Employment Services Transformation Phase 3 Market Sounding/Vendor Engagement

The Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD) is beginning Phase 3 engagement to inform the implementation of an integrated employment services delivery model in three high-complexity catchment areas in Ontario: Toronto, Northeast and Northwest.

The ministry welcomes interested organizations to engage in an open dialogue and bring their perspectives on how to improve service delivery and client outcomes in these catchment areas. Organizations can provide feedback through a market sounding document, released today on the Ontario Tenders Portal (OTP), as well as through upcoming vendor engagement sessions.

The market sounding document and vendor engagement sessions are open to not-for-profit, private and public entities including municipalities, colleges and Indigenous organizations. Interested organizations must register to attend the engagement sessions. More information on the engagements is available in the market sounding document.

Call for Applications Launch: Investing in Women’s Futures Program

The Office of Women’s Social and Economic Opportunity (OWSEO), Ministry of Community and Social Services, has launched an open Call for Applications to expand the Investing in Women’s Futures (IWF) program.

The IWF program provides employment training opportunities and wrap-around supports for women facing social and economic barriers, including abuse and isolation, so they can overcome barriers, increase well-being, build skills and gain employment. This investment will expand the program by up to 10 new service delivery sites, allowing for more women to get the help they need to develop in-demand skills and participate in the labour market.

The new IWF recipients will be selected through a call for applications process, which is now open to eligible organizations until November 8, 2022.
