Learn new skills, get coaching and access resources to set yourself on the path for success on your employment journey. That place is Jobs Caledon at Caledon Community Services (CCS).
CCS supports job seekers of all ages and has special programs to support local businesses with their staffing needs. We also offer specialized, paid employment training and support designed to give youth, ages 15 to 30 an edge, including the opportunity to obtain credible work experience that employers are looking for.

Our programs are funded by the federal and provincial governments and available for participants at no cost. Even better, as a youth, you can start getting paid as soon as your program begins. Completion bonuses are in effect for some programs and transportation may be available. Take the first step toward your future with the help of the experienced professionals at Jobs Caledon.

Through Jobs Caledon, our business community has access to online job postings, recruitment support, facilities to host job fairs, financial incentives for hiring and a range of wage subsidies that offset employee training costs.
