Abstract

This paper examines the effectiveness of the Ontario government’s jobsOntario Training (JOT) program to determine whether it is successful in helping social assistance welfare recipients obtain jobs. A review of provincial documents as well as surveys and interviews with officials responsible for the development and implementation of the program were conducted. The findings reveal that pre-employment training is effective in helping social assistance welfare recipients become employed and the use of local brokers to deliver JOT contributes to the success of the program.
