Origin

(February 11, 2015) Report from the Acting Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration

Summary

This report seeks authority to renew the agreement with Service Canada for the City-administered Toronto Youth Job Corps (TYJC) program for the 2015 contract year.

 

TYJC provides pre-employment support, structured employment training, employer placement and follow up supports for youth most distant from the labour market. TYJC was initiated in 1983 and has been reviewed and updated to meet both changing youth needs and funding requirements.

 

TYJC is administered by the City of Toronto and delivered by three community agencies selected through an open request for proposals process: JVS Toronto, West Neighbourhood House (formerly St. Christopher House), and West Scarborough Neighbourhood Community Centre.

 

On November 18, 2014, Social Development, Finance and Administration submitted a contract renewal application with an anticipated start date of April 13, 2015.  Service Canada approval for the City's application is expected before March 31, 2015.
