About Us

Who Are We?

Goodwill, The Amity Group is a social enterprise that helps people overcome employment barriers and obtain work, thereby increasing their dignity and independence within the community.

In support of this effort, our retail stores recycle and sell donated goods, which not only helps save the environment, but also provides training opportunities for individuals seeking employment, and funding for services not supported by government.

Other social enterprise initiatives include our Commercial Services Division, which helps local businesses by providing secure confidential document destruction services, and Stairways Coffee House & Catering meeting the tastes of businesses and individuals in downtown Hamilton.

To accomplish this cause, Goodwill works with both individuals and employers to find employment solutions that meet employers’ business needs and provide individuals with work. A good employee can make a good business even better and Goodwill has the expertise to find, train and match individuals for today’s business needs. Since 1935, Goodwill has been doing just that.

If you are looking for work, employees, bettering the environment, that unique shopping deal, services for your business, or simply a good cup of coffee, check us out!

Since 1935, our focus has been to find employment solutions for individuals and employers alike, throughout the Hamilton-Halton area.
