Tuesday, June 23, 2020

00:00 WELCOME & INTRODUCTIONS

Moderator: Paul Markle, Barrie Chamber of Commerce

Panel:

00:03 – PRESENTATION

00:03 – Role of Employment Ontario Service Providers in the Barrie Community

00:09 – COJG

 

00:18 – Youth Job Connection

00:30 – Apprenticeships

 

00:34 - Q&A

00:34 - Are there age restrictions on the COJG?

00:35 - Can I apply for COJG directly online? Or am I better to go through a service provider such as yourself?

00:36 – Are there age restrictions for co-op or placements?

00:40 - Has Covid-19 expanded the definition of “challenges finding employment“?

00:44 - I had heard that the Ontario College of Trades was ending, how will this impact apprenticeships?

00:46 - It's been mentioned that many of the programs have a requirement that you must be unemployed to apply. Are there services for people who want to level up from a career they are currently in?

00:48 - What is the best way to decide which employment service is right for my business?

 

QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN THE CHAT:

  • Does the career centre cost money?
    No, it is a free service.
  • I heard there is a lot of funding going into second career forpeople looking to reskill. Can anyone speak to how this works?
    Yes, we deal with Second Career. At Agilec, we have a designated Employment Coach who is a subject matter expert, but all coaches are familiar. We have a workshop available through our online resource and information centre that outlines Second Career and explains clearly eligibility and how the matrix is completed to determine the training subsidy that may be possible. They assist candidates with completing their application as well.
