Today, Essential Skills Ontario is pleased to announce the release of our interactive PIAAC map - PIAAC: A Map of Cognitive Skills in Ontario.

Over the past year, Essential Skills Ontario and our partners have been working to design platforms for three communities in Ontario to develop and build local industry-specific career ladders. Funded by MTCU, Career Ladders: The Next Step in Three Communities was the second phase of a two-part career ladders initiative, where we assessed the viability of career ladders in three communities in the Durham, Brant and Thunder Bay regions. Through this work, we developed a guide book – Career Ladders at Two – which addresses training development and steps towards implementation of career ladders in the Ontario context.
