The Elk Valley WorkBC Employment Services Centre is inviting members of the public to come and join them for the grand opening of the Elk Valley office.

Staff at the centre said they are excited to officially celebrate this event June 6.

“Our grand opening will provide an opportunity to welcome the public into our offices and share information about how our services can help make it easier for people to find work, providing stability for their families, and help connect job seekers with employers, providing needed support for strong local economies,” says Amy Boeckner Business Services Coordinator for the Elk Valley region.

The opening will be Wednesday, June 6 at 10:30 a.m. at the Elk Valley WorkBC Employment Services Centre, 302 C Second Avenue Fernie, with light refreshments and invited guests.

Services for the Elk Valley region are provided through a storefront location in Fernie, as well as itinerant services offered to the surrounding communities to ensure coverage and access to services across the catchment area. Services help job seekers with job search strategies, resume building, and provide information on employment related programs and training. All job seekers can access the self-serve area free of charge. This includes access to job listings, resource library, on-line tools, internet, printing, faxing and computer use for employment related needs. Additional support and resources are available for job seekers who are currently unemployed or underemployed and are legally eligible to work in B.C.

The Elk Valley WorkBC Employment Centre also works with employers to assist in their recruiting needs and to ensure that job seekers can connect with the most up-to-date job listings. “Our goal is to work with employers to both understand and help fulfill their labour market needs. This helps us to better support job seekers in making career path choices that will lead to successful long term employment,” says Amy Boeckner.
