Collaborative Opportunities Project 2012-2013

Essential Skills Ontario, First Work and The Ontario Network of Employment Skills Training Projects(ONESTEP) are pleased to be working together on the Collaborative Opportunities project funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Through community town hall meetings and discussions with key stakeholders, the project aims to enhance the cooperation between the three organizations and examine opportunities for streamlining services.

The project will produce a strategic roadmap for how the three organizations and their membership can better work together in order to apprise stakeholders of client needs, service gaps and the effectiveness of services in order to better inform policy and programming decisions.

Members of the associations can look forward to invitations to Town Halls and teleconference meetings over the next year. For more information please contact Ghazal Niknazar, Senior Project Coordinator at Essential Skills Ontario at
