Training

EcoEquitable offers multiple programs that support the social and economic integration of people in need, especially immigrant women.  Our programs are designed to support individuals on their journey towards self- sufficiency and full integration into Canadian society.  Our goal is to deliver sewing training programs that motivate individuals to surpass the minimum income needed to cover life's necessities, and provide them with the life tools they need to fulfill their dreams and ambitions.  Programs are offered at our location in Heartwood House, in a warm, welcoming and caring environment.
Currently EcoEquitable offers the following programs:

 

  • “Sowing for Jobs” Beginner Level
  • “Sowing for Jobs” Intermediate Level
  • “Sowing for Jobs” Advanced Level / Home Décor
  • Transition to Employment

 

The name “Sowing for Jobs” is not a typo, but rather a play on words to illustrate the intention of the program to unearth participants’ hidden talents, grow the entrepreneurial spirit, as well as cultivate employment opportunities in the community.
