Ontario Works

Community Placement Program

If you are on Ontario Works and want to make a difference in your life and in your community.

Volunteering can help you:

  • Develop skills
  • Gain work experience
  • Explore career options
  • Develop a job-finding network
Quote from client:
" It has opened a lot of doors for me and I have learned new skills "

As a volunteer, you also reap personal benefits and enhance your personal growth.

  • increase social awareness
  • learn through service
  • enjoy better health
  • gain self-confidence
  • discover your strengths and talents
  • build a sense of independence
  • expand your social circle
With a strong resume and new skills, you'll find it easier to strut your stuff to prospective employers or take on more challenging volunteer positions in the community. That's the thing about volunteering. You get as much out of it as you put into it! And often, you get a whole lot more. So roll up your sleeves and get involved.

Community Helper Program

The Community Helper Program provides Ontario Works participants with opportunities to perform general labour work such as seasonal yard maintenance or by completing odd jobs outside the home for seniors in our community in an effort to help them live more independently. Participants can also volunteer with non-profit community organizations.

Any Ontario Works participant who is interested in learning more about this program can drop into our center to speak to an employment consultant.
