Job Café connects individuals to community members looking for short-term (often single-day) workers. We assist people to earn additional income and contribute to the community in a variety of ways. Jobs include moving, landscaping, window washing, street sweeping, and more.
Since 2015 we have joined with the Ontario Trillium Foundation to develop the Job Cafe into an enterprise project, that continues to provide employment opportunities, and builds on unique engagement opportunities.Over three years we are developing work opportunities, strengthening infrastructure, and expanding the projects that come under the Job Cafe umbrella.
