Note: we are an Employment Program, you will be required to sign up for the program. Click here for details on how to do so.
When you sign up for the program, at your intake interview please mention you are looking to be reimbursed for your certification so we can ensure funds for this offer are still available at the time of your intake.
Once we have been confirmation of employment of 26 hours per week or more and a receipt, you will be reimbursed by cheque. You can pick up the cheque once we contact you to inform you it is ready or we can mail it to you. If you do not have the money to front this expense, we may be able to work something out on a case by case basis if it means you securing employment.
Kindly note: we do not do Food Handler or Smart Choices Certification at our program, you will need to be certified by an accredited company.
Final note to ensure clarity on this limited time offer: we do not just pay for people to have these certifications added to their resume. Clients must pay for certification up front out of their own pocket and will not be reimbursed until they have started work at their new job and provide us with a receipt.
