This report delivers evidence-based and practical recommendations on how to better support employment and economic development in Canada. It builds on sub-national data analysis and consultations with local stakeholders in four case study areas across Ontario and Quebec. It provides a comparative framework to understand the role of the local level in contributing to more and better quality jobs. The report can help federal, provincial, local policy makers in Canada build effective and sustainable partnerships at the local level, which join-up efforts and achieve stronger outcomes across employment, training, and economic development policies. Co-ordinated policies can help workers find suitable jobs, while also stimulating entrepreneurship and productivity, which increases the quality of life and prosperity within a community as well as throughout the country.

Ontario's employment and skills system

This chapter provides an overview of Ontario’s employment and training system. Ontario is Canada’s largest province in terms of population and overall economic activity. Employment and training policies are managed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Employment services are delivered through Employment Ontario, which is a network of locally based outsourced service providers. The training system is highly developed and Ontario’s community colleges play a significant role in supporting local economic development through their responsiveness to employers.
