Cost for Services

  • Many public organizations provide services free or for a small fee.
  • Other private organizations may charge you for their services (for example, anywhere from $100 to $1000 CDN for a resume).
  • A resume that costs you money is not always better than the one you get for free. It's not a question of quality. It's a question of funding.
  • Most of the services listed here are non-profit agencies funded by the government.

A good way to start your job search is by making an appointment with a Settlement Counsellor at the New Canadians Centre by phone (905) 377-8100 or by email.
