Tourism SkillsNet North is a program which was created to identify specific labour gaps, train up to 200 job seekers/employees and match them with participating tourism and hospitality businesses across Northern Ontario.
Participants will gain access to free industry relevant training (value of $1000+), while participating employers will receive a wage subsidy of 50% (up to $5000) per employee, conditional on the completion of the mandatory training courses by the employees.
Registrations are now open and the program will run until March 28th, 2023!
