Employment Support

Community Participation (CP) – Volunteer Placement Program

“Can’t get a job without experience? Can’t get experience without a job?”

Sometimes Ontario Works (OW) participants find gaps in their employment, or barriers which make it hard to find a job. Volunteer placements are great for clients who need some additional skills and experience to become job ready.

The CP - Volunteer Placement Program matches appropriate participants with volunteer placement opportunities in not-for-profit community agencies. Consultants help find a volunteer opportunity, which allows OW participants to gain skills and experience for the workplace. Consultants also work with community agencies to assist with meeting their volunteer needs.
