The CCBA is hosting a Fall Mingler at the Gibsons Public Market on November 2nd. Join us for a fun evening of socializing and networking.
Jobs in Demand is a program funded through the Government of Canada that seeks to resolve unemployment rates with youth in specific in-demand industries. On the Sunshine Coast, Jobs in Demand runs 4 different industry cohorts a year. This summer, we have partnered with the Sechelt Indian Band to create a bigger and better program.
As of right now, two cohorts are running simultaneously together: Trades Assistant and Tourism/Retail. The Trades Assistant program seeks to give training young people an opportunity to get into the Trades or Sub-Trades industries through specific certificates such as: Backhoe, Forklift, OFA, Confined Space, Traffic Control, WHMIS and many more. Some of our clients have worked in this industry already, and some are new to the trades, however they are all very reliable and hard-working.
If you are looking to fill an employment need within your business, do not hesitate to contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org / 604-885-3351 ext 3001. Our services are free, and even if our needs don’t match up, we will get you sorted with our affiliate, Work BC.
Come visit us at the 2017 Home & Garden Expo June 10th in Gibsons at the Community Centre and enter to win one of these fantastic prizes!
The 2017 Home & Garden show is thrilled to announce that the Sunshine Coast Credit Union has committed to being our Presenting Sponsor!
