– Providing employment assistance services
– Programs and services for youth
– Training opportunities and support
– Poverty reduction initiatives
– Workforce development, information and services in trades and technology
– Community economic development through initiatives such as social enterprise

The Skills Centre has a new look! Their logo may have changed, but their dedication to our community is the same. If you haven’t been to their website in a while, you should check out the new format here. And, be sure to place your next job posting on their job board!

“The Skills Centre is a member of the Chamber to support and be connected to the businesses in our regional community.  Secondly, the monthly Chamber newsletter is an excellent vehicle to communicate with the  businesses and has a Chamber member we have access to that effective network.”
