Women First 

Futureworx has been selected as a delivery partner on the Women First: Women Employment Readiness Pilot Program, WERP administered nationally by PTP in Toronto, with funding support from Employment and Social Development Canada.  The focus of this undertaking is to study the impacts of including wrap-around supports in the delivery of services to marginalized women. 

The goal is to identify promising models for providing pre-employment and skill development supports defined as foundational and transferable skills training and wrap-around supports for different groups of multi-barriered women, specifically the following four sub-groups: 

  • Racialized and/or Indigenous women
  • Women with disabilities
  • Women from the LGBTQ2 community
  • Women who have been out of the workforce for a long time

This ‘Women First’ program is an amazing opportunity for women to have a safe space to share, collaborate, and relate with other women.   We are offering a FREE 11-week program which includes: pre-employment activities, career decision making tools, skills enhancement workshops and certificates and experiential work placement. 

Next Intake – April 17, 2023
