To attract newly graduated Personal Support Workers to work in Long-Term Care homes and Home and Community Care agencies in greatest need across Ontario, this initiative provides a $5,000 incentive to support hiring recent PSW graduates in exchange for a six-month commitment to an eligible employer.
PSWs who have graduated from their Ontario PSW training program* on or after April 1, 2020 are eligible to apply for approved opportunities via HFOJobs.ca.
*For eligibility purposes, completed PSW training programs must meet the 2014 program standard established by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
This is a free government-funded job board and registration takes less than one-minute. Postings will continue to be added to HFOJobs.ca. Create a job alert to receive an email notification when new postings are added.
Each employer will recruit using their standard recruitment process, and priority will be given to PSWs not currently employed in a PSW role providing patient care. It is the responsibility of the employer to submit a request for funding to Ontario Health on behalf of eligible PSWs.
To be eligible for this incentive, you must start a six-month commitment with an eligible employer no later than January 15, 2021. Priority approval will be given to applicants who start as soon as possible.
