Ontario Works - Job Search

You and your worker may decide you have the skill set to complete an independent job search, which involves looking for a job independently using various resource tools. 

If you and your worker decide you are not ready for this type of job searching you may decide to complete a Structured Job Search where you work more closely with your worker in the pursuit of employment through a more specific employment plan. Job searching may involve working with an outside employment agency such as Employment Services Elgin where the following services may be available.
