Facilitating solutions to meet workforce needs now & in the future

Welcome to the ECOTB


Since 1997, the East Central Ontario Training Board (ECOTB) has been a member of the regional community. ECOTB is part of a province-wide Local Board Network, with principal funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) under Employment Ontario.  As a not-for-profit organization, ECOTB is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Our prime focus is on local labour force development. ECOTB conducts research, data collection, consultation, analysis and reports on the local workforce requirements. Based on our findings, we work with our community partners to develop events, projects, activities and resources that are timely and appropriate to our local needs.

Our projects are varied and so are our community partnerships. We work closely with the local municipalities, economic development offices, employment service providers, chambers of commerce, employers, business associations, educators, social service and healthcare agencies.
