AJAX, ONT. — The Investing in Women’s Futures program will be expanded and enhanced over the next three years thanks to a $6.9 million investment from the Ontario Government.
The program is being expanded to up to 10 new centres and further funding is being provided to the 23 centres currently offering the program, which provides employment training opportunities and supports for women facing social and economic barriers.
The new service delivery sites will be selected through a call for applications, which is now open to eligible organizations until Tuesday, Nov. 8.
“Many women face additional challenges participating in the workforce, such as child care and caregiving responsibilities,” said Charmaine Williams, associate minister of women’s social and economic opportunity, in a statement. “We are expanding the Investing in Women’s Futures program to ensure that women have the supports and in-demand skills they need to pursue good-paying jobs or pursue further education that can help lead to financial independence.”
