    Are you looking for work or need help with your job search?

    Toronto Employment & Social Services (TESS) can help.

    TESS provides employment supports, financial benefits, and social supports to people living in Toronto.

    TESS offices are open to all Toronto residents and their staff provide a range of services including helping people with:

    • finding a job or the training they need to find work
    • accessing financial benefits available through the Ontario Works program
    • connecting to health, housing, childcare and other social services

    Community Worx

    TCHC tenants can also participate in employment programming in their community through Tridel's Community Worx program.

    Tridel is the development partner for three TCHC revitalization projects: Alexandra Park, Leslie Nymark, and Regent Park. Tridel's Community Worx is a resource for community members to get connected to available jobs and to get the support needed to find success at every step of their employment journey. Visit the Tridel website to see the jobs available in your community.
