YES believes that anyone who wants to work, deserves to work. The Employment Service program is open to individuals of all ages and all levels of need. Through this program, YES offers free resources, supports and assistance to respond to the training, career and employment needs of individuals. To access this service, just walk in.
Access Resources and Information
Service begins in our Resource Area. Our Resource Area is an open access labour market service and information hub for our community. We provide information on local training and employment opportunities, community service supports, and occupations and education. We provide a safe space for all customers. Everyone is welcome to utilize our office equipment, tools and resources. The Resource Area is fully staffed with professionals committed to providing support to every customer who walks in our door. We will assess your needs and match you with the services that will best help you attain your employment and training goals.
Meet with a Career Development Practitioner
Services at YES may include receiving personal guidance from one of our Career Development Practitioners (CDPs). CDPs are employment professionals who help you explore what the best version of your future could look like. CDPs are advocators and collaborators. We will help you to set goals and build plans to achieve them. We become active partners in your job search, helping you build job search and employment skills, and working with employers to coordinate job matches and placements.
Education and Re-training options including Second Career
CDPs also assist customers with training and education goals. We help customers explore academic upgrading, post-secondary options, and Second Career funding. Second Career helps customers gain skills for jobs in demand now. It also provides financial support to those who qualify. We take individuals through the entire Second Career process, from assessment through to application submission.
If you could benefit from any of these services, visit YES to get started, or call our main number to speak to one of our CDPs.
