About PTP

PTP is a community-based organization located in Toronto, Canada, dedicated to strengthening the connection between learning and work. For over twenty-five years, PTP has delivered programs and services that have created pathways for positive change to people facing literacy and other barriers to employment. We strongly believe that well-designed workforce training solutions will improve the social and economic well-being of Canadians, through empowering them to find meaningful work and giving them hope for a better future.

In Toronto, our innovative and versatile team delivers a range of Learning Programs and Employment Services to prepare people for new opportunities in education, training and employment.

Across Canada, PTP’s Training and Consulting Division, Compass, is guided by our commitment to developing a strong, capable and sustainable workforce. It is built around the CAMERA System (Communications and Math Employment Readiness Assessment) and the resources that form part of the system. The end goal is to equip service providers across Canada with effective tools that tie together assessment and instruction in support of workforce-oriented literacy and essential skills programming.

PTP is a not-for-profit organization, with charitable status. To read about some of our success stories, and to learn how PTP’s programs have touched and changed the lives of people in Toronto and across Canada, please follow the links below.

PTP acknowledges that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.

The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Toronto Purchase and applies to lands east of Brown’s Line to Woodbine Avenue and north towards Newmarket. We also recognize the enduring presence of the Aboriginal peoples of this land.
