You Fit

The You Fit program provides personalized employment solutions for young people including marginalized youth and young adults who are not employed, not in training or enrolled in educational activities. The program identifies and provides the supports needed for success by increasing your employability skills through a concentrated five-day intensive “boot camp” program.

During the program, the participants are paid a living allowance equivalent to 30 hrs x minimum wage. Post-program, participants not employed are paid to attend a six-week work placement at 35hrs/wk x minimum wage.  If child care is required please ask for details on supports available.

The program will be delivered online to York Region and Peel Region residents.

Self-employment Pathways for Newcomers

Having just gotten to Canada about 2 weeks ago this was the most valuable experience I have had. I have run my own business in the past and appreciate that execution and time management is one of the most important things I can focus on. I got so much value from the slides and the conversation today because this was insight that would have taken me months to gather.
