Our Partners

This program has three significant partner groups:

Provincial Partners:

These partners are three John Howard Society affiliates located in Toronto, Hamilton and Durham Region who will open an asbestos abatement social enterprise.  This model is currently operational and self-sufficient in Ottawa and will also continue running throughout this project.

Employment Ontario:  

Each provincial partner is also partnered with a local Employment Ontario service site. This partnership will provide the referrals needed to meet our target numbers.  They will also provide some financial assistance to the client with respect to personal protective equipment, personal workplace skills development and transportation support.


RSE in Ottawa has a solid base of partnerships with six employers in the asbestos industry.  Using a similar methodology, employers in each provincial site will partner with RSE to provide work experience and feedback to help the youth to further develop their skills.  This partnership is of benefit to the employer as it fills temporary work shortages and provides suitable candidates to select for long-term employment as positions become available.  It is essential that RSE provide individuals who reside in the area and can maintain consistence regular communication to employers to develop these working relationships.
