Community Futures on the job

Community Futures staff continue to work with clients to make sure they have the skills needed to find jobs

Community Futures staff continue to work with clients to make sure they have the skills needed to find jobs or to get to the next level.

Through provincial support, you may qualify to have up to $7,500 of your occupational skills training tuition paid for.

“Clients research the local labour market needs, and then come to us with their findings,” said Donna Palmer, team lead .

“It is then up to the client and their case manager to identify the best option for their individual needs.”

By accessing training dollars, clients that may not have otherwise had the chance were able to complete courses resulting in new employment opportunities.

Some clients have identified labour market needs in areas such as business and office administration, bookkeeping, and long-term caregivers in the health care field.

“If you are unemployed and looking for work and you are finding jobs that interest you, but you don’t necessarily have the training that is required for the position, this may be just what you need,” said Palmer.
