New Collaborative Career Centre Coming Soon – Middleton

September 16th marked a new beginning for two local non-profit organizations as they formalized their commitment to work collaboratively on assisting unemployed individuals in the Valley area.  The chairpersons of the PeopleWorx and Community INC board of directors signed a memorandum of understanding to co-locate their offices in Middleton into a newly renovated career Nova Scotia centre.

Over the past two years, multiple service providers in Annapolis County have come together to discuss the possibilities of exploring a more client-centered approach in the delivery of employment support services for residents looking for work. The vision is to be able to “bring service to the client” instead of sending the client to the service, which is currently what is taking place with various service providers located vicariously throughout the community. 

The intention is to provide better client services by finding ways to:
• Partner on the delivery of existing and future programming
• Provide a holistic approach to employment support services
• Take an inclusive approach in serving the client and partnering
• Centralized services for the residents of East Annapolis and Western Kings Counties
• Generate economic benefits for the community

We are pleased to announce that work has finally begun at the new location at 296 Marshall Street in Middleton. The new space will include a front end (Careers Resource Centre model), offices, as well as workshop / training rooms for programs and integrated programming. Joining Community INC and PeopleWorx in this space will be the Nova Scotia Community Access CAP site, Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia and Valley Community Learning Association and our hope is that this list grows. The partners believe that the best practices that are identified in working more closely together can be shared throughout the province.  

The new location is scheduled to open in early 2015.  If you would like more information about current employment services and resources that are available, please visit communityinc.ca or peopleworx.ca.  Community INC and PeopleWorx are funded through the Canada-Nova Scotia
Labour Market Development Agreement under the direction of Employment Nova Scotia.
