This Online Job Search Centre is generously supported through a (CAD) $1.4 million grant from Accenture (2016.) The Centre contributes to the project's larger goal which is to create an end-to-end online services platform at ACCES Employment that will provide job search services and programs to more than 56 000 new Canadians seeking employment over the next two years.
In addition to their support through this grant, Accenture has been the proud sponsor of ACCES Employment's IT Connections program for the past three years. Throughout the year, Accenture staff are also actively engaged as volunteers that support jobseekers through guest speaking, mentoring and other activities. In 2015, more than 100 Accenture team members volunteered with ACCES.
