Employment Service

Employment Service is a year-round program for unemployed individuals. Program participants receive access to the agency resource centre services including training workshops, one-on-one pre-employment counselling and job placements. We also provide participants with support to keep their jobs.

Program Benefits

  • Training: Program participants receive access to Tropicana Employment Centre training workshops.
  • Job Placements: Program participants may be offered a job placement.
  • One-on-one Employment Counselling: Employment counsellors assist with job-related activities. This may include career planning, job search, resume and cover letter preparation, interview skills and job maintenance.
  • Job Trials: Job trials allow program participants to work in a job for a few days. This gives the employer and the participant the opportunity to determine whether or not it is a good fit and if they are interested to pursue a full-time position. While on a job trial, clients are typically paid directly by TEC.
  • Training Support: The program offers training support in the form of transit fare, interview clothing, tools for jobs, if required, and other necessities to find and sustain employment.
  • Other Support: Other support may include, but is not limited to, assistance with housing, social assistance, disability supports, education and literacy programs or other training.
