Since 1978, Working Skills Centre (WSC) has been providing a holistic program to help individuals overcome barriers to employment and move towards economic self-sufficiency. While mandated to serve a broader clientele throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), our mission statement reflects the emphasis on programs for immigrant women geared towards improving their skills, self-esteem and employment prospects.
