Job Matching, Placements & Incentives (JMPI):

Apprenticeships:

Prepare for the Future and invest in our Youth! 

As many tradespeople are nearing retirement, it is good to be prepared. By hiring an apprentice, your business becomes eligible for various tax credits, grants and bonuses, not to mention you can mold the new staff to ensure they are a good fit for your company. A $2000 Apprenticeship Employer Signing Bonus (AESB) is available to sponsors who train as part our JMPI program.

Training:

Crossroads as well as Contact North, both located at 312 Pine Street in Ignace, provide unlimited free access to hundreds of courses that are available to your new and existing staff. Many of the courses can be completed online or by using our resource rooms.

Contact us today for a full list of courses available. We can also help plan and acquire funding for custom training programs for your staff ie: drivers licensing, first aid, smart serve, safe food handler course, etc so your staff do not have to leave the community.
