CLAC Jobs in Ontario

In Ontario, CLAC Jobs sends lists of available workers to CLAC employers. CLAC does not run a hiring hall. This means that you are allowed to find work wherever you want—whether it’s for a CLAC employer or not.

The Employment List

Fill out the CLAC Jobs—Ontario Form to get on our employment list. We send employers a list of all available tradespeople. You will be listed in one trade. When we send the list, we will also indicate if a resume and proof of credentials are available to employers upon request. To stay on the list, please contact our Jobs Team in Ontario every two weeks. If you are contacted regarding a work opportunity, please respond, or we will assume you have found employment and will remove your name from the list. If you are hired by a CLAC company, we will remove your name from the list. To get back on the list, simply contact us—you don’t need to fill out a new profile form.

Cost - This employment service is FREE to all CLAC members. To keep your membership current, contact your local member centre. Not a member? Simply pay a $50 administration fee to use this service for six months.

Mandatory Health and Safety Training - Prior to being added to our employment list, you must provide proof of WHMIS and fall protection (or Working at Heights) training that meet CLAC standards. If you do not have this training, CLAC can arrange it for you at cost.
