Community Transition Services
Community Transition teams provide tailored community transition services to rural communities experiencing significant economic impacts, often due to the closure or reduced operations of a major employer.
Community Transition teams offer a tailored response to meet specific community needs and work closely with:
- Local governments
- Provincial ministries
- Federal government
- Indigenous governments and organizations
- Non-governmental organizations
- Private sector organizations
The provincial government and partner organizations help with transition responses such as coordination, facilitation, and implementation services to communities, using a wide variety of resources.
