About PTP

In 2017, PTP is celebrating 25 years delivering programs and services that have facilitated positive change to people facing literacy and other barriers to employment. We have helped over 25,000 people learn, find new opportunities and build futures!

As a social purpose organization, we aspire to improve the social and economic well-being of all our participants.

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, our social enterprise, PTP 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.

We believe strongly that well-designed workforce training solutions will improve the social and economic well-being of Canadians, empowering them to find meaningful work and giving them hope for a better future.

PTP is a federally incorporated not for profit organization, has charitable status, and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

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.
