Employment Services

Filed under:
The primary focus of Social Services is assisting recipients to obtain and maintain employment. The Employment Services staff work with all participants to place them in the most appropriate employment related activity. Some people may not be able to participate in all programs if they have health limitations or preschool children at home. Temporary deferrals from participation will be provided where appropriate.

Employment related activities that participants can attend include basic education and upgrading, job specific skills training, volunteer work, job search support services, work placements, job searching or almost any activity that will increase future employment opportunities. Social Services also partners with a number of other community agencies to deliver programs and supports. There are almost limitless opportunities available to participants.

There are a number of employment related benefits that can be issued to assist with job search and participation activities. Benefits can include things like child care, transportation, clothing, school supplies, safety equipment, grooming supplies etc. There are also specific benefits that can be provided when participants do find work to help get started.
