Eastern Ontario Training Board Expands Services to OttawaMarch 22, 2023
Cornwall, Ontario – The Eastern Ontario Training Board (EOTB) is expanding its workforce development programming to include the Ottawa-Carleton region.
The Ottawa Employment Hub, previously administered by Algonquin College, will now fall under the umbrella of EOTB, creating new synergies in the local employment sector that will broaden opportunities for job seekers, employment service providers, employers and educators.
EOTB will continue to gather and share insights on the local labour market, engage with employers and facilitate collaboration on labour market solutions in Cornwall, SDG Counties, Prescott-Russell, Ottawa and Akwesasne. In addition to labour market info, EOTB delivers a number of important services to the region including:
“We are thrilled with this expansion, and look forward to continuing to deliver these essential programs and resources that support hiring and workforce development across our entire region,” said Martha Woods, EOTB Executive Director. “This amazing opportunity to expand into the Ottawa market means we have created a sustainable link to jobs and services delivered in the nation’s capital. The spinoffs for the local labour market will reap the benefits of this new arrangement.”
The changes take effect April 1.
