JOB CREATION PROGRAMS:
JOB CREATION PARTNERSHIPS
The Job Creation Partnerships Program supports community-oriented projects that provide work experience to participants and improve their chances of finding long-term employment. This Program is a financial assistance program that seeks to enable unemployed persons to gain work experience by creating temporary jobs.
Project activities should benefit both the participant and the community and must therefore be limited to partnerships with public sector and non-profit employers; no private companies. This will also improve the client’s long-term employment prospects.
