New services are opening up for people looking for work.
Starting April 2, B.C.’s employment program will be delivered through WorkBC Employment Services Centres.
“This new program provides great opportunity and responsibility for our organization and our partners to meet the employment service needs of our region over the next five years,” said Kim Lauritsen, program manager with Community Futures North Okanagan, which will run the centre locally.
“We look forward to the challenge and are confident that, together with our partners, clients will receive all of the available employment services for which they are entitled and eligible.”
Community Futures has partnered with several other service providers to ensure clients receive the appropriate employment services at the right service location.
Partners include the North Okanagan Employment Enhancement Society, the Vernon Immigrant Services Society, the John Howard Society and Kindale Developmental Association.
Itinerate services will be provided in Armstrong at Gateway School and in Lumby at the Whitevalley Resource Centre.
Additionally, the WorkBC Employment Services Centre will work with the employment services at the Okanagan Training and Development Council and the Splatsin First Nation.
