Employment Assistance - South West

Unemployed or underemployed people can get help through drop-in resource centres, job search assistance programs, and job-skills workshops. Employment counselling and career planning services provide information on the labour market, grants, funding, apprenticeships, and other opportunities for ongoing support.

For youth-specific programs, see Employment Assistance for Youth.
