Job Zone d’emploi is a non-profit, all-inclusive organization that prepares, guides and assists individuals, in both English and French, to find employment through employment and career counselling, information resources, job opportunities and access to community and outreach services. They foster cooperative community partnerships in an effort to be responsive to their clients’ needs while being sensitive and respectful of the challenges facing them. They can respond to the needs of employers by providing information on the local labour force, posting employment opportunities, as well as providing support for HR planning and recruitment.
As a service provider in the counties of Stormont and Dundas, Job Zone d’emploi is available to assist local agri-food producers and businesses with their training and hiring needs. Their services are free and confidential.
They were developed in 1985 shortly after the provincial government recognized that there was an increasing number of young people between the ages of 16 and 24 that were unemployed. At the time, it was known as the Youth Employment Counseling Centre in Cornwall and only had a staff of three people. As the need for the centre grew, as did its team and the services and programs it provided. In 1992, the agency became known as the Employment and Education Resource Centre of Cornwall and District, Inc. (EERC), and, in December 2002, the centre decided it needed a new look and launched its new name and logo that we recognize today.
Their team now consists of 38 friendly, dedicated, professional individuals who have been providing assistance and helpful resources to job seekers and employers in the counties of Stormont and Dundas and is led by a committed and community oriented board of directors. Their success in helping their clients is based on their expertise and understanding of the client groups they serve.
They would like our members to know that the Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) has the objective to provide direct financial support to employers who wish to purchase training for potential or existing employees. Employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained, and the training that meets their workforce development needs. The cost of training is a shared investment between employers and the Provincial and Federal Governments.
