The Kawarthas to see an employment services agency

The Kawarthas will be a test site for a new Ontario employment services agency.

In a release from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the new agency aims to make employment services more responsive to the needs of the changing economy.

Beginning in the fall, the new employment services model will launch in three areas: Muskoka-Kawarthas, Peel Region and Hamilton-Niagara.

To carry out testing, the Ontario government is seeking organizations to oversee the employment services system in their regions. It's open to any public, nonprofit or private sector organization.
