Practice Firms at Job Skills
Job Skills’ Practice Firms No Longer Accepting New Clients
After careful analysis and consideration, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, has decided to no longer fund Practice Firms across Ontario. As a result of this decision, Job Skills’ 3 Practice Firms — Simpressions (Markham), Simfit (Mississauga) and Simplicious (Scarborough) — are no longer accepting new clients as of March 9, 2012.
Please note: Job Skills will continue to support existing clients with their Practice Firm experience and follow-up until the end of July.
Job Skills would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those community partners who supported the Practice Firm model over the years and referred clients to this unique opportunity for workplace experience.
After the post-intervention tracking period is complete, the Practice Firm staff will refer clients who still need assistance to their Employment Advisors at the closest EOES site.
