History & Mission

Equal Access to Opportunities

Tropicana Employment Centre was established in 1988 as a division of Tropicana Community Services to help youth in Scarborough and North York overcome barriers to employment by providing connections to employers.

Our mission as a division of Tropicana Community Services is achieved through culturally appropriate programs such as counselling, childcare, educational and employment services and youth development.
