Today, we are one of the largest providers of employment, newcomer, language and youth services in the Greater Toronto Area. We put each client at the centre of our work. Our wide range of high-quality and personalized programs and services provide people from diverse backgrounds with the resources and guidance needed to achieve their goals.

Last year, we supported over 100,000 clients, over 50% of whom are women and girls. We worked with 3,600 employers, helping them expand the diversity of their workforces and foster more inclusive workplaces.
We are proud of our track record in connecting people to employment, newcomer, youth, and language services. In 2021-22, more than 47,000 newcomers received settlement support though our Newcomer Information Centres at 9 GTA locations. We organized 126 virtual hiring events and helped more than 13,000 youth gain employment skills.
