Ontario Centre for Workforce Innovation

December 1, 2016

The Ontario Centre for Workforce Innovation was established in January 2016 at Ryerson University with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) to provide a single coordinated access point for research on evidence-based employment and training approached for the Employment Ontario (EO) network and other partners, and access to user friendly actionable information, tools, resources and training. The Centre will incorporate a decentralized hub approach with one central location in Toronto and four distributed hubs that will cover different regions/stakeholders of Ontario: North (Thunder Bay), East (Kingston/Ganonoque) and West (London) and Francophone (Sudbury).

The four regional hubs will ensure province-wide coverage, serving all communities in Ontario. The hubs will be interconnected in their sharing of best practices and will work together to mobilize communities toward more effective practices of the Centre in every region.

Each hub will have a resident Regional Coordinator who reports to the Executive Director. The North Superior Workforce Planning Board/Thunder Bay Local Employment Planning Council will be housing the Northern Hub Coordinator.

Ryerson University is now accepting applications for the Hub Coordinators. Click here for the Job Advertisement
