The Hospitality Workers Training Centre

The HWTC is a non-profit organization working in Toronto’s hospitality and food service industries. Based on a sector-focused workforce development approach, HWTC provides free of cost training to new entrants and existing workers for employment and career development. Our goal is to strengthen the workforce of our city’s hospitality industry by connecting people in need of employment to job opportunities – through high-quality training and strong partnerships with the industry.

Training is designed to both meet the needs of industry and to build skills and opportunities for the Hospitality workforce. We help people access jobs in Hospitality and ensure that those currently working in Hospitality get the training they need to advance.

We were created as a partnership between the Hospitality Workers’ union (UNITE HERE Local 75) and major hotels in Toronto and modeled on the Culinary Training Academy of Las Vegas.


The Hospitality industry in Toronto is large, and growing. If you’re currently unemployed and hoping to find an entry point to the Hospitality Industry, our training programs might be right for you. All of our training programs are:

  • Hands-on focused to help you build the practical skills to prepare you for employment.
  • Connected to industry hiring needs and employment opportunities.
  • Short and intensive to get you trained and working as quickly as possible.
