The Career Foundation is operating a national Career Focus program and a regional Career Focus program. Please note the regional Career Focus program only serves the Toronto region.

Our national program aims to connect post-secondary youth, aged 15 to 30 in theGreater Toronto, Peel, Halton, and Hamilton-Wentworth regions with private sector employers.

Currently the national Career Focus program has a full wait list and is no longer accepting applications. If you wish to be added to the mailing list for any updates on future programs, please contact us at CareerFocus@careerfoundation.org.
