Exits Due to Employment

Importance


The number cases receiving Ontario Works that staff have assisted to secure employment.

Story behind the numbers


People receiving Ontario Works are required to look for work or participate in employment activities, which may include enrolling in employment training, completing volunteer work, participating in a skills training program and/or completing education and ultimately finding sustainable employment. These activities positively contribute to the individuals’ experience and increase opportunity to secure employment.

Performance improvements
