Ontario Works is looking for 10 recipients to participate in the Superior Skills Farming Training program which begins mid-May 2015. Superior Skills will provide an intensive 8-week training program focusing on skills required in the farming industry. This program will emphasis and promote individual responsibility and personal growth.
