We are the Eastern Ontario Training Board.
We help Cornwall, SDGPR and Akwesasne strengthen their employment skills.
We offer a variety of programs to support workforce development. The mandate of the EOTB has remained consistent since the agency was incorporated in 1998.
We ensure access to quality local labour market information; engage employers to help identify skill gaps, employment opportunities and training needs; support stronger linkages among employment services, and help workers find jobs and careers. We also address the needs of newcomers to our community.

Feedback from our participants
Meet Caleb Toews, a 16 year old past participant of ours who recently completed our Machine Operator program. He was referred to our training program through his employer, Shaver-Kudell. He was working as a general labourer and was offered the opportunity to advance within the company if he updated his education and obtained certifications. Caleb received 3 weeks of hands-on training including: welding, lathe, mill, and drawings at St. Lawrence College as well as 2 weeks of pre-employment training and one-on-one coaching. In just 5 weeks, Caleb was ready and eager to test out his new skill sets! Shaver-Kudell offered him an apprenticeship as an Apprentice Machinist.
Meet Jessica Turenne, a past participant in our Early Childhood Education program. Jessica reached out to the EOTB for assistance because she felt unfulfilled with her previous jobs, needed a change and didn’t know where to start. Jessica was a perfect match for our youth-based program which consisted of 3 weeks of employability workshops and employment upon completion.”Working in childcare is a labour of love. My favourite part is being a source of support for children and families. EOTB connected me with support and friendships that will last a lifetime.”
Meet Meghan Jackson, a past participant in our Office Assistant program. Meghan connected with the Eastern Ontario Training Board to upgrade her skills in order to gain employment in the Administrative sector. Meghan had been out of the workforce for many years and came to us with the goal of finding long term employment, which would allow her to become financially independent. “My expectation was to find a job after training…I have achieved that goal.”
