Celebrating 85 years of changing lives
through the power of work
Our mission is changing lives and strengthening communities through the power of work. We deliver that mission by providing Employment Services and skills training that offer a path to income security for individuals and their families and in some cases, break generational cycles of poverty. By helping employers find their workforce, we support their objectives, are a catalyst for strong and healthy neighbourhoods, and facilitate meaningful opportunities for people who are too often marginalized.
Guided by our founder, Edgar J. Helm’s two mottos - “a chance not a charity” and “a hand up not a hand out” – we’re honoured to have been influencing positive, long-lasting, transformational change in our communities for 85 years.
