Collège Boréal opens new Employment Options Emploi centre

Hamilton, November 30, 2011 – Representatives of the City of Hamilton and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) gathered today for the official opening of Collège Boréal’s new Employment Options Emploi centre. Located at 2 King West, (Bay & King) Lloyd D. Jackson Square, this one-stop service centre offers for free a full range of bilingual services available to all residents of Hamilton.

The President of Collège Boréal, Denis Hubert-Dutrisac, underlines the importance of accessing employment services that are adapted to current conditions to ensure a successful job search: “Finding a job is a challenging and crucial step in a one’s life. We want job seekers to benefit from our knowledge of the employability sector and the business community in order to facilitate this process and provide the best chances for success.

The strategy is to serve the needs of both job seekers and local businesses that are looking for competent personnel.” This Employment Ontario service, funded in part by the Government of Canada, provides Hamilton’s Francophone and Anglophone communities with a wide variety of direct employment services, such as assistance with resume writing and letters of interest, job-worker matching, internships and support for employment retention.

Besides the regular tools to ensure successful job searches, Employment Option Emploi’s personnel provides customized support to persons with an interest in other programs, such as Second Career, Ontario Self-Employment Benefit, Ontario Job Creation Partnerships, Apprenticeship Programs and Academic Upgrading.

Through Employment Options, Collège Boréal provides employment services in 23 communities across the province. Included among these communities are London, Sudbury, Timmins and Kapuskasing.
