Employment program comes to Mission in 2012

A co-operative in the Fraser Valley has won a provincial contract to provide employment opportunities for Mission, Agassiz and Hope residents.

The Fraser Valley Employment and Support Services Co-operative will operate the program out of WorkBC Employment Services centres beginning in April.

The co-op is made up of Mission Community Skills Centre Society, Chilliwack’s Win Resources Inc., Agassiz-Harrison Community Services Society and Hope’s Free Rein Associates Training Ltd.

“We are very pleased that we have been chosen to provide employability services in these communities,” said co-op chairman Klaus Werner. “It has been a significant undertaking with lots of support from our staffs and community partners.”

Werner said the new employment program will be a one-stop centre that will make services easily accessible for both job seekers and employers in the region.

“I expect it will be very beneficial for the community of Mission,” he said. “People will be able to access the services they need right here in town.”

The new employment program of British Columbia will officially launch in April 2012.
