Flowchart showing that temporary work can lead to full-time employment

From Unemployment to Employment: Temporary Work Service has been shown to provide a useful steppingstone in many cases.

If you are a job seeker...

If you are eligible for our program, AWS will help you prepare for, find, and retain work in your field.

First, we consider your individual interests, preferences, and skills. Then we market your strengths to service customers. All workers are covered under the Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB). We handle the paperwork and can assist with job coaching and transportation.


To become an AWS client, you must be at least 16 years old, an Ontario resident, and willing and legally able to work in Canada. You may qualify for help if you have a disability that is expected to last a year or more and that makes it hard for you to find or keep a job. You do not have to receive income benefits from the Ontario Disability Support Program in order to qualify for Employment Supports.


If you are an employer...

You can benefit from hiring people with disabilities. Sometimes a hidden employee resource, our clients are often especially ready, willing, and able to make significant contributions to your organization.

With supports, disability-related barriers to employment can be overcome to ensure that people with disabilities are included as a valuable resource in the workplace.

If you don’t require continuing employees, our temporary work service can make reliable workers available for jobs and projects that meet your needs, such as:

  • stock taking
  • cleaning
  • office and reception duties
  • general labour
  • contracts


If you are a homeowner...

Could you use help with odd jobs for a few hours, days, or on a continuing basis?

Our temporary work service can make dependable workers available for jobs such as:

  • window cleaning
  • gardening
  • housecleaning
  • wood piling
  • opening and closing cottages
