Investing in airport workers with Ontario’s Skill Development Fund

As much as an airport is about runways and planes, it’s even more about people, and we’re excited to announce a major investment in Toronto Pearson’s people. The GTAA will receive more than $1.6 million from the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) to create Toronto Pearson’s first ever airport-wide job portal called Pearson Works! Online.

The funding comes from the ministry’s Skills Development Fund, and on April 28 we welcomed Deepak Anand, the Parliamentary Assistant to Minister McNaughton and MPP for Mississauga – Malton to celebrate and recognize the awarding of this significant funding.

Pearson Works! Online will support the recovery, reskilling and upskilling of the Toronto Pearson workforce, one of the country’s most dynamic, multi-employer workplaces. This portal will connect more than 400 airport employers and the thousands of airport workers with job opportunities, training and supports, while helping one of the hardest hit sectors of Ontario’s economy.
