Welcome!  This is where you can apply for our FREE Services to suit your unique employment needs.

Looking for work?   We are here to help!  We have all kinds of services to help you reach your employment goals.  These include a staffed Resource Centre open to all job seekers.  We offer over-the-shoulder help and lots of information right at your fingertips to make sure your job search is the best it can be.  Or, maybe you want more individualized, one-on-one assistance through our “Personalized Services and Supports”.  This includes meeting with a Case Manager to discuss a comprehensive array of employment programs and services that can help you towards success.  At your first appointment, we will listen to what you need and discuss programs and services that are likely a good fit to help you reach your goals.
