Elk Valley Job Seekers

The Elk Valley Job Seekers Centre on Second Avenue will be closing its doors at the end of the month. The centre has provided a virtual list of job positions and opportunities around the Elk Valley, offered assistance with resume and CV writing, as well as free printing services and collecting information for further training and professional development. The current service provider, the College of the Rockies, is being replaced by The Canadian Mental Health Association. It is not yet known how the new provider will operate, and what this means for jobseekers, but it is believed Fernie residents and seasonal visitors will no longer have access to free job search assistance. The current operation will close on March 27 and the new facility will open on April 2 in the same location. The staff at the current facility, said “We would like to thank our clients, business partners and the communities of the Elk Valley for their patronage over the years.”
