Employment and Labour Market Integration

MENTAL HEALTH AMBASSADORS PROJECT

what is it?

A network of mental health professionals in Toronto that want to share their knowledge with the frontline staff of settlement, employment and other organizations to assist them in providing quality services to newcomers that may experience mental health issues. We are expecting to engage 10-12 professionals for the pilot.

Referral to Employment Supports Survey Results

The Toronto North LIP conducted a survey to:

  • explore employment supports for internationally-trained professionals and to identify gaps within these programs
  • identify employer engagement practices used by employment service providers and 
  • identify available employment support services and gaps from the perspective of seniors, LGBTQ, people with mental and physical disabilities and other vulnerable groups. 

Our findings are presented in this report. 

Funders' Forum

Mapping Toronto North Services

We are working on developing a list of current services and programs that could be used by new Canadians from Syria in Toronto North, their sponsors and service providers. We hope to complete this resource by early January and present it at the info session & fair for service providers and sponsors. Please stay tuned for more details on that. We also hope to get a better understanding of what information and/or training you might need to effectively serve newcomers from Syria.
