Notice – There will be a change in the delivery of the Summer Job Service (SJS).  SJS will be ending on March 31, 2016 to make way for a new, more comprehensive and targeted suite of employment programs and services to help youth with a broad spectrum of needs. These include: Youth Job Connection and Youth Job Link.  In addition to the supports available for employers looking to hire youth, EO also offers employer supports through the following programs: Canada-Ontario Job Grant, Apprenticeship Training Tax Credit, Employer Apprentice Completion Bonus and Targeted Initiative for Older Workers.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to know more about any of these programs. Our phone number is 613-687-1717 in Petawawa or 613-584-1717 in Deep River.  You can also find more detailed program information by visiting the EO website at http://www.tcu.gov.on.ca/eng/employmentontario/
