   Connecting you to the right opportunities and talent 




 About us: 


Magnet is a new network powered by a data-rich, job-matching technology that quickly and accurately connects job seekers to employers based upon skills, preferences and talent needs. This powerful network is also a unique and valuable source of real-time labour market information for decision makers and community planners.

Magnet’s goal is to address unemployment and underemployment, specifically as it relates to youth, new immigrants, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and other individuals facing barriers to
employment. 

The network’s vision is to help connect jobs to people and enhance the economic strength of communities. What’s unique about Magnet is that it provides a technology-driven, multi-faceted approach to solving these pressing social issues by bringing together five stakeholder groups – education, government, labour, not-for-profit and industry sectors – on one common platform to address one common goal. The job-matching platform is incubated at Ryerson University’s DMZ.  Magnet promises to revolutionize how people find meaningful employment and how organizations source talent.

To date, the Magnet network includes:
• 30+ university and college partners representing 700,000+ students
• 83,00 job seekers
• 7,000 employers
• 180+ community-based partners
• 30-member Advisory Council composed of leaders from a cross-section of relevant sectors
