OSHAWA – The City of Oshawa is proud to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, it is the recipient of the Ontario Employer designation from the Provincial Partnership Council (P.P.C.).

The Ontario Employer designation recognizes extraordinary employers that support the futures of large numbers of Ontario students through opportunities such as cooperative education placements, school-work transition programs, youth apprenticeship programs and volunteer placements.

“This is the fourth year that the City has received this designation and, once again, demonstrates the great opportunities we provide to youth in our community,” said Councillor McQuaid-England, Chair of the Corporate Services Committee. “We are committed to investing in our youth, and sharing the diverse number of careers and opportunities that are available within local government.”

In 2016, the City of Oshawa provided a number of learning experiences for students, including:

  • cooperative education opportunities through Trent University; and,
  • volunteer opportunities available for over 18,000 high school students from 26 schools across the city to help with important events such as the Community Clean-up, the Peony Festival and Canada Day celebrations.

The P.P.C. is comprised of leaders from the private, public and voluntary sectors and is a volunteer advisory committee of the Government of Ontario. The P.P.C.’s mission is to ensure that Ontario employers appreciate the value of engaging students in meaningful experiences that foster workplace skills development and guide students in making educational career-related decisions. Created in 2010, P.P.C.’s Ontario Employer Designation distinguishes employers that are supporting the futures of significant numbers of young people across the province through experiential learning programs.
