Back On Track With JobTrack

Guelph, ON Jan, 29, 2020 - A cheque for 10,000 was presented to Equine Guelph by The Grand River Agricultural Society (GRAS) on December 18, 2019 as a donation toward the redevel- opment of Equine Guelph’s Job- Track service. JobTrack is a service used to link employers with people dedicated to working in the equine industry. “The donation falls under

our organization’s mandate to en- courage an awareness of agricul- ture

and to promote

improvements in the quality of life of persons living in an agri- cultural community,” says Grand River Raceway director of oper- ations Jamie Martin. Equine Guelph’s JobTrack

has been providing a free, invalu- able service to the horse racing industry linking employers and job seekers for over 15 years,

thanks to the original funding from The Horsemen’s Benevo- lent and Protective Association of Ontario (HBPA). It was HBPA president, Sue

Leslie, who was first to pledge her support to the proposal for an update. “I’m excited that the Job- track program is being modern- ized, says Leslie, “The Board of the HBPA recognizes the impor- tance of this site to our members who rely on it. We are pleased to assist Equine Guelph financially, to keep the program going, make much needed updates and im- prove the interface for a user friendly and interactive experi- ence. We look forward to the final result.” Both The Horsemen’s

Benevolent and Protective Asso- ciation of Ontario and Ontario Racing have agreed to provide seed funding for the redevelop-

ment of JobTrack. “The employment aspects of

horse racing cannot be underesti- mated; many involved in the in- dustry do so for the love of the horse and the dedication to their craft,” says Executive Director, Ontario Racing, Katherine Curry. “Ontario Racing is proud to sup- port Equine Guelph and its Job- Track program endeavors.” “JobTrack has been promot-

ing careers in the racing industry since the inception of Equine Guelph,” says Equine Guelph di- rector, Gayle Ecker. “The service has helped pair up employers with grooms, trainers, barn man- agers, breeding farm employees and has reached upwards of 40,000 visitors in a calendar year. We are certainly appreciative of the generous funding which will help us give JobTrack an up- grade!”
