Community Transition Services

Specialized community transition services are available for resource based communities experiencing significant job loss impacts - such as a result of the closure or downsizing of the community's primary employer or industry.

Supports and services are quickly mobilized in the areas of worker transition, economic diversification planning and social services. These supports are coordinated with those provided by the local government and community agencies. 

Typical supports and services include:

  • Job fairs
  • Skills training and career counselling
  • Incentives for entrepreneurs
  • Support for families
  • Community open houses
