Our government is investing an additional $14 million in the Black Youth Action Plan to help Black youth achieve their career goals.

The Ontario government is investing an additional $14 million in the Black Youth Action Plan to help youth access employment opportunities and career-building resources.

The funding will be used to create a new economic empowerment program to help community organizations and Black-led businesses create local projects that provide the skills youth need to find jobs in high-growth sectors.

The economic empowerment program includes three new initiatives that will enable community organizations and Black-led employer and business leaders to design programs that help Black youth and young professionals achieve social and economic success by building pathways to jobs. Applications for funding are available at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/black-youth-action-plan

Our government is making sure all Ontarians have access to the tools they need to build successful careers, including skills development and professional mentorship

It is imperative we build an inclusive, future-forward workforce where everyone has equitable access to jobs and opportunities which will help support our province in our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
