Counselling Session

Employment Counselling

"I am writing to compliment the staff at TEC. It's seldom that a government office gets kudos - this office must be noticed!

I introduced a young man to Tropicana Employment Centre who was having a terrible time at home - I had heard about him through my son and his friends. At first, I didn't know where to turn, but I wanted to help him so I got on the Internet. I found and called several agencies but didn't get any assistance until I called TEC. The receptionist noticed the urgency in my voice saying, "Come in right away - we'll help." That same afternoon, I brought the young man and he met with an employment counselor. It wasn't easy to find this young man a job especially during this recession; but your staff stuck to it until success. Tropicana Employment Centre got him the exact job that he was seeking!

Tropicana Employment Centre has a program for unemployed youth that definitely works! I am very grateful for the tremendous help your dedicated employees extended to this young man who I believe now has a great chance at success in life." - Employment Ontario Participant

"Through the years I have worked with TEC I have successfully hired several of my current staff. Tropicana Employment Centre provides the support that allows me to train my staff. Our office manager, an Tropicana Employment Centre candidate, has been with the company for over a year. He was a newcomer with no prior experience working in Canada. He has been a huge asset to my team and I am grateful to Tropicana Employment Centre for introducing us." - Tropicana Employment Centre Employer

Summer Jobs Service Program

"There was a client who needed summer employment not only to pay for tuition in September but also to provide for her family. Due to cultural and religious practices, it was a challenge for her to find employment on her own. Tropicana Employment Centre staff worked with her to improve her resume and then contacted potential employers in an effort to find her work in Toronto. Tropicana Employment Centre was able to find a fundraising company willing to give her an interview. She called back 3 days later to inform us that she would start working as a fundraiser the next week." - SJS Participant
