ON to expand the Second Career Program, propose tax credit extension

November 25, 2021
The Government of Ontario has announced that it will be expanding the Second Career Program, as well as proposing an extension to the Ontario Jobs Training Tax Credit. By Spring 2022, the Second Career Program will be expanded to support not only individuals who are unemployed or have been laid off, but those who are unemployed with little or no work experience, self-employed, or gig workers. The program will also offer better support for those whose employment barriers have worsened due to the pandemic such as young people, newcomers, people with disabilities, and people on social assistance.
