We would like to share information about a new ‘Pathways to Prosperity’ program that supports youth who have dropped out of high school or 2022 graduates not yet enrolled in post-secondary education. 

The Pathways to Prosperity program includes 4-weeks of FREE training at Fleming College in one of four sectors — manufacturing, construction, agriculture, or food service — plus a 5-week paid work placement with a Peterborough County or City of Kawartha Lakes employer. Program participants will earn industry certifications and tickets before the work placement starts and have an opportunity to secure further employment when the program ends.

Program Streams

  1. Manufacturing: Learn how to use measurement systems and tools, learn CNC machine fundamentals, production line operations, troubleshooting and quality assurance concepts. Be introduced to welding and other manufacturing jobs. (Next cohort starts July 25)
  2. Construction: Learn how to operate hand and power tools, construct floor joists, frame walls, install and remove roof shingles, install vinyl siding, and learn about the demolition of residential construction projects. (Next cohort starts June 27)
  3. Agriculture: Learn how to use farming equipment using state-of-the-art simulators, learn to safely operate equipment, learn about heavy equipment maintenance, and gain agriculture work safety and awareness skills. (Next cohort starts June 27)
  4. Food Service: Gain foundational skills for the food service/restaurant industry, including the basics of food preparation and cooking, proper food cutting techniques, safe use of commercial kitchen tools and equipment, food allergens, and food safety training. (Next cohort starts July 11)

To qualify for this free training opportunity, participants must be currently unemployed or under-employed (less than 20/hrs a week) and not currently enrolled in other education or training.

For more information about ‘Pathways to Prosperity’, visit or contact your local employment service provider.  A list of providers within the Muskoka-Kawarthas region is available on our Fleming Employment Hub at



Are you interested in a new Personal Support Worker Program that will be available in the area in the coming months. 

We have been consulting for MEDIX College as they have a unique PSW program they are offering which offers free tuition, books, and the 300 hours of practical placement are compensated through Government PSW Challenge Fund. A great incentive to develop more interest in becoming a caregiver in more remote areas in need. 

As the need for caregivers in Ontario continues to rise Medix College can now teach the course remotely as long as there are opportunities for local students to do practical placements in local facilities. We have one retirement home in Lindsay willing to host students, and 2 in Bobcaygeon. 

Wondering if this program is something that you can make students aware of as they explore post secondary options? I have copied Mike Parker on this email as well as he is the primary contact for anyone interested. [email protected]

Due to Covid restrictions the Lindsay Optimist Club has been unable to run our soccer program for the last two years, but this year we are back.  However, during the pandemic we lost many of our volunteer coaches and we ask for your help in re-building the pool of high school student volunteer coaches.
The students helping us in the past volunteered for different reasons:
1. Some needed volunteer hours
2. Some wanted to “pad” their resume before applying to Colleges and Universities
3.  Others simply enjoyed helping out
Whatever their reasons, it was a mutually beneficial relationship and we would very much appreciate any help I.E. Weldon can give us in recruiting the next group of volunteers.
At this point we are asking specifically for coaches for our U11 age group  (Grade 3 & 4 students) but we will obviously welcome volunteer coaches for other age groups as well.
The U11 season runs on Monday nights 6:30-8:00 from May 9th until June 27th and there is a 3 hour tournament on June 4th.  The Optimist Club provides guidance before the start of the season, and support on the fields throughout.  Coaches also do not need to referee the games.
Please let me know if you can help and what, if anything, you need from our side.
Thank you in advance

A Quinte West company is relocating to a larger facility in Campbellford and will be increasing its workforce. Mirmil Products, which has been operating out of its current location in Quinte West since the 1960s, is moving to the 165,000 square foot former Dart Cup plant at the end of June. The move will allow the company, which is one of a handful of highly specialized architectural millwork companies in North America, to expand its current operations as well as the scope of work it performs. Mirmil currently employs about 70 people but CEO Travis Walker expects that number to grow to well over 100 when they are settled in their new home.

“We’ll be looking for cabinet makers, machine operators, production associates, as well as drafting and engineering personnel,” says Walker. “These are quality, full time jobs, with a full benefits package and excellent working conditions, in a spacious facility with state-of-the-art equipment.

Mirmil is one of a handful of highly specialized architectural millwork companies in North America. Its products are used in hospitals and universities, high end hotels, bars, casinos, stadiums and other public buildings across the United States and Canada.

Mirmil is fortunate to work on some of the highest profile, largest, commercial construction projects in the world. Clients include Disney, MGM Resorts, Hardrock Hotels, Yale & Harvard universities, MIT, The Borgata, Loew’s Hotels, and The Westin Maui.  Click link for more info:
