“Second Career” is an Ontario government program that offers training for a new job. Second Career provides career planning and financial support specially designed to help laid-off Ontarians to participate in long-term training for a new job. Career counselors at Canadian Career College can help you take the first step.
Ontario Government Program “Second Career” helps recently laid-off Ontario workers get the skills training they need for high-demand jobs in their communities.
