    Leslie Nymark employment

    Connecting TCHC tenants with employment is another goal of our revitalization work. TCHC and Tridel are collaborating with our local agencies and partners in order to leverage supports and services.

    We have been able to provide our tenants with opportunities by the Canada Summer Jobs Program and the Ontario Summer Experience Program. We anticipate more opportunities to become available as restrictions due to COVID-19 are lifted and employers are in a position to hire more employees.
