1.3 BACKGROUND INFORMATION Ontario is transforming its employment services to help more people find and keep quality jobs and increase the number of businesses finding the right workers with the right skills. Ontario's plan for transforming employment services includes the integrating of social assistance employment services into Employment Ontario

• A 2018 Auditor General's report found that the oversight process of the Ontario Works program and the service managers that deliver the services required improvement.

• Employment programs for Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program will be integrated into Employment Ontario to create one efficient, cost-effective system that's easy to use, helps all job seekers and better supports employers.

• A more locally-responsive service planning and delivery model will better meet the employment and training needs of individuals, businesses and communities. Organizations will be selected to manage the employment services system in each catchment area.

• The improve new model will be phased in, starting with three prototypes in fall 2019. Employment services will work more effectively with other government services, including social assistance, so when people find themselves facing barriers to employment, they can get the help they need to return to work.

Changes to Ontario's employment services will be implemented gradually over several year
