OUR STORY

JobStart is a community based, not-for-profit agency connecting people looking for work with employers looking to hire. 

For Job Seekers, we provide with a range of services designed to get them into the workforce. We provide adults, foreign trained professionals, newcomers to Canada, persons with disabilities, seniors, students, women, and youth with access to programs and services to help them find work. If you are looking for the right job, contact us and ask to speak with one of our qualified Job Coaches.

JobStart provides employers with recruitment services at no cost, volunteer opportunities such as mentoring services, and access to apprenticeships. JobStart pre-screens employees to ensure the best possible fit with the employer's requirements. Employers can also post jobs on our job board or host and/or participate in job fairs. 

 

Assisting our clients prepare for and find employment is what we are all about. Success is evident in the faces of our clients as they move on to build their future and attain economic self sufficiency.  
 

JobStart provides employment services at three locations in Toronto.
