While we are at home staying safe and keeping our family and friends safe, we are still “open for business”!
We are remote and using technology but we are here to support your employment and job search needs. We can do client intakes over the phone, resumes, cover letters and job search online, prepare for interviews and provide support for employment barriers.
This might be a great time to have everything ready to go when services and businesses are back up and running.We are just a phone call/email/social media step away!
As stated above, we are also looking at some ideas for webinars and online workshops – we would like your input on what you might want to see and learn.
In the meantime, we can be reached at 519-421-2077 (please leave a name and number and we will return your call as fast as possible – even better – give us an idea of what you might need and we can direct you to the right Employment Counsellor!).
Our staff are keeping to regular business hours of Monday to Thursday 9 – 4:30 and Friday 9 – 4.
If you are an employer and are still hiring – please give our Job Developer Karen Nilsson an email and she will get back to you to answer your questions and provide support.
Walk, talk, breathe and treasure this time with family. Our community is strong and our village is resilient!
Take care and be safe and healthy!
Your WERC Team
The Women’s Employment Resource Centre has closely followed Southwestern Public Health’s advisories regarding the COVID-19 virus and the directions of our funders. We are committed to ensuring our clients continue to access employment assistance supports during this time.
As of Wednesday, March 16th, we will temporarily provide our delivery of services online/by phone until Monday, April 6th with an update to follow then. This measure is in place so clients can stay home and still be able to access individual service. If you are a new client seeking job search assistance, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-421-2077 and leave a voice mail for assistance, and please allow up to 48 hours for a response.
If you are currently a client, working with an employment counsellor or Job Developer, you may contact them by email so we can continue to provide online support. Please check our website for a list of staff emails.
Thank you for your continued patience during this time. Please look for regular updates on our website and social media!! Our staff and Board of Directors wish for all of you to treasure your families right now and take this “break” as a time to breathe, refresh, evaluate and move forward!
