Mitzie Hunter Hosts Forum for Small Businesses
Scarborough-Guildwood MPP focused on the Success of Small Businesses and Creating Jobs
Over 75 Small Businesses and 5 local employment agencies from Scarborough-Guildwood gathered with Scarborough-Guildwood MPP Mitzie Hunter and the Honourable Brad Duguid, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities to discuss how the Youth Employment Fund can grow businesses and create jobs in the community.
The fund helps businesses by providing support to hire a youth employee, allowing them to expand their operations. It provides youth with meaningful work experience, enabling them to build networks and acquire the skills they need to compete in the workforce. Those who attended heard a success story from Brandon Roberts, who worked with Progress Career Planning Institute and is now employed with Shoppers Drug Mart. He said “I gave the number of PCPI to my friends and within a week, they were working.”
Equipping small businesses with the tools and information that will help them grow is part of Mitzie Hunter’s commitment to expanding employment opportunities and improving the lives of people in Scarborough-Guildwood.
“It was great to see local businesses, employment agencies and community members in Scarborough-Guildwood come together for our forum. When all sectors and parts of our community work together, amazing things can be accomplished.”
