WERC Update June 28, 2021

In Step 1 – WERC is following the Guidelines for the safe re-opening of Ontario under the Ontario Government and Southwestern Public Health. We are currently following a locked-door policy to ensure the safety of our staff and clients however we are able to open for computer resources and administrative support services. Please call ahead if you wish to use the computer lab or photocopier so that we may book a time that works best for you: 519-421-2077.



In Step 2 – WERC will continue to offer both computer resources and administrative support services as above. Throughout the summer WERC may run on-site workshops with 5 or less individuals in our classroom setting. All workshop rooms are set up for social distancing with barriers in between individuals. Masks will be required as per Public Health regulations. Look for our “Lunch and Learn” workshops to be advertised on our social media!



In Step 3 – WERC will be fully open and operational however most staff will continue to work remotely until after Labour Day. Please call to book an appointment or feel free to walk in to use the computer or administrative resources. In September 2021, WERC will be offering full workshops and programming in accordance with Public Health Measures.



Should there be a change in the re-opening plan for Ontario, WERC will keep you updated on our website and social media platforms!




The Staff and Board of WERC wish you all a very safe and happy summer!!!

The Workplace Skills Development Program is Changing

WERC is pleased to present this FREE 6-week skills development program.
Originally a 12-week program, WERC condensed the learning materials to 6-weeks to help you get into the workforce faster with update to date skills, job search strategies and resources and support for women.
Below we have posted a video of one of the elements of the program – Skilled Trades. Together with employability skills, computer basics, food handler’s certification, access to community resources for health, financial and education (etc.), this is a well-rounded program for assisting you with a successful return to the workforce or helping with your educational options.
WERC assists clients with one-on-one job search support, resumes, cover letters and interview practice along with many other resources.
Please feel free to call us and ask for more info! 519-421-2077.
