Now registering for workshops

Community Collaborations Available

OSSCO is seeking community collaborators in the GTA to share information about our educational program with their clients. We are looking for older adults who may be interested in gaining more knowledge and give them new insight. Should an agency have 20 or more interested adults for a specific workshop, that workshop may be delivered at the agency site. 

Contact Caron Leid, Educational Program Assistant by email: education2@ocsco.ca for collaboration opportunities and group presentations.

Educational Workshop Participation

These toolkits are offered free of charge to older workers who are unemployed between the ages of 50 – 70.  These programs are not intended to replace existing funded programs. Instead, they provide targeted additional learning opportunities for this age group.
