About Job Skills

Unemployment strikes in a variety of ways. Whether an individual has been affected by company restructuring, needs skills upgrading, doesn't know where to look for work, or wants to pursue self-employment, Job Skills can help.

Job Skills, a non-profit, community-based employment and training agency, began offering employment training in northern York Region in 1988.

Today, the Agency provides Employment, Newcomer and Business Services and Programs in York Region, Bradford West Gwillimbury, Dufferin, Halton, Peel and Toronto. Job Skills has expanded over the years and currently maintains locations in Keswick, Newmarket, Markham, Mississauga, Brampton and North York.

The services, programs and training delivered by Job Skills are designed to meet clients' individual requirements, as well as being flexible enough to respond to the needs of the community, changing employment conditions and shifts in the labour market. Special initiatives undertaken by Job Skills to build on community capacity or support a specific target group complements the Agency’s core business.

Clients come from a variety of backgrounds: from youth at-risk of diminished life outcomes — to the 'over 45' worker who is looking for work or considering self-employment for the first time — to the newcomer to Canada who brings a strong educational background but needs current, Canadian work experience.

Job Skills has proven to be reliable and effective in providing services and programs and has earned a reputation for excellence that is client-centered yet results-oriented. Over the years, Job Skills' Staff of qualified professionals has served the full diversity of clients seeking supports and assistance in finding employment or initiating small businesses.
