The ALiGN Network

Talent Assessment and Job Matching Platform Targeting Labour Shortage Occupations

In response to the critical labour shortages facing many of Ontario’s key sectors, OTEC has launched an innovative youth-targeted employment model called the ALiGN Network. Funded in part by the Government of Ontario, the initiative has brought together industry partners from across the province to develop a psychometric-based talent-to-role fit assessment and job-matching model. 

Through the ALiGN Network, youth will be matched to live job postings based on their own unique personality attributes and interests. Work-ready job seekers will be fast-tracked into employment. Candidates with skills or qualifications gaps based on the assessment process will receive industry-designed training and certification, either through a network of regional training partners, or, through an online suite of industry training programs that can be accessed remotely.
