Niagara's Employment Ontario providers have released a new flyer outlining the resources they are making available as we weather the COVID-19 pandemic. The original flyer can be downloaded in PDF format here. The information from the flyer has been provided below:


The Employment Ontario Providers in Niagara are continuing to provide services to employers throughout these unprecedented times. All EO agencies in Niagara are open for virtual business. We would like to encourage employers to reach out to their local agencies. Services/supports that we are continuing to provide include:

  • Assistance with providing consultation to employee groups being temporarily laid off seeking basic need supports, mental health services/referrals and the like. All EO agencies are well versed in community supports that employees may need to access during the lay off period.
  • Assisting employers struggling with staff shortages - as workforce is depleted due to child care/school closures and sick leave, increasing staffing rates to meet increased demands.
