SPCO Community Outreach Program
Through our Community Outreach Program, the SPCO’s employment and community development team actively engages the community, forming partnerships and championing social justice and positive change. This program harmonizes with local agencies, residents, and decision-makers to devise an outreach strategy that effectively addresses the diverse social and economic needs of Ottawa’s population.
We facilitate access to quality jobs, offer support in crafting resumes and cover letters, provide placement opportunities and training, extend career counseling and guidance, foster entrepreneurship and self-employment, and encourage mentorship and networking.
