Through First Work, the Green Skills Network has access to more than 70 established connections with employment centres across Ontario. We help our partners help their unemployed and underemployed clients find and keep meaningful employment that will help improve the quality of their lives.
Becoming a part of the Green Skills Network will provide your centre and your clients access to labour market information and other research that will identify new opportunities for growth within the green economy, a reputation enhancing brand, and a wide pool of trainers and employers. We support our member centres' missions, and assist them to reach their targets.
We provide access to new opportunities in the expanding green economies. Our Local Champions help spread the word about our program, and connect clients to our valuable services. By becoming a Local Champion, your centre can teach others about the benefits of becoming a part of the Green Skills Network. If you are interested in getting your centre involved, please contact us for information about our next training session!
