What is the Ontario Job Creation Partnerships (OJCP) Program?
The OJCP Job Creation Partnerships program is an employment program offered in partnership by Ottawa Festival Network (OFN) and the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) to provide work experience to unemployed job seekers (Employment Ontario). The OJCP program provides opportunities to work on projects that benefit the community or local economy while providing participants opportunities to acquire new skills and/or keep existing skills current, to expand a network of contacts, and to maintain an active resume.
