The Employer Champion Awards were created by the Provincial Partnership Council, a volunteer advisory committee of the Government of Ontario comprised of leaders from the private, public and voluntary sectors. The PPC's mission is to ensure that every employer in Ontario appreciates the value of engaging high school students in meaningful experiences that foster workplace skills development and helps them with education and career-related decisions.
Today, more than 40,000 employers across the province have been actively involved in shaping Ontario’s future workforce by
providing students with the vital work experience and skills needed for a successful working life.

. Job Shadowing . School-Work Transition Programs . Mentoring . Classroom or Worksite Visits . Career Talks . Cooperative Education . Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program .
