Take the Collaborative Opportunities Survey

Essential Skills Ontario, ONESTEP and First Work invite you to complete this 15-minute survey. The information collected will help us develop a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that are at play within Ontario’s training and employment field and how they can be reflected in our work. Funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Collaborative Opportunities will identify, foster and share innovative ideas among employment and training service providers, government stakeholders and provincial associations. The findings of this survey will provide a unique opportunity to examine the issues being faced by employment, youth and training agencies across our province. Your information will be strictly confidential, and will only be shared in aggregate, non-identifying formats.

Why we need your help:
Participation by your organization and other employment and training service providers is vital to help us better understand the challenges being faced by employment and training services. The data collected will make a real difference to the policy recommendations coming from this initiative.

Before you start:
We’d like you to answer for the employment, training or youth service offered by your agency or department. If you cannot, please consider passing the survey on to the person in your organization who is better placed to respond.
