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.
