Earn while you learn!

Funded by the Government of Canada, Career Launcher is a new program offered through Fanshawe's employment centres in London, Simcoe, St. Thomas and Aylmer. This program comes at no cost to eligible participants!  


Eligible participants will receive funding to offset program costs (eg. tuition and textbook expenses) for up to one year while they take part in online workshops covering employability and skills training. Participants will also receive a stipend to allow them to attend certain program components that may include additional expenses (eg. transportation costs, child care). Take advantage of individual coaching and support from one of our Employment Consultants as you identify and develop your new career path!
