Back to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Summary page

Employment Ontario (EO), Ontario's integrated employment and training network, makes it easier for Ontarians to find the employment and training programs and services they need. To remain competitive in a global economy, EO will help build Ontario’s goal to have the most educated people and highly skilled workforce in the world. EO programs and services can be grouped into four categories:

  1. Employment and Training Programs
  2. Apprenticeship Programs
  3. Foundational Skills Programs
  4. Labour Market Programs

EO programs and services are delivered through the EO network, comprised of Ontario’s community-based network of employment services, literacy providers, public colleges, direct delivery apprenticeship offices and training delivery agents. EO aims to deliver integrated, customer-focused and effective employment and training to advance Ontario’s economic advantage.
