Elk Valley WorkBC Employment Services Centre, www.jobsinfernie.com 250-423-4204
The Elk Valley Employment Centre provides the full range of integrated supports and services available through the new Employment Program of BC. The Centre opened its doors on April 1 and is celebrating a grand opening on June 6 at 10:30am.

Services are provided Monday to Friday (9am to 5pm) through the same storefront as the outgoing JobSeekers Program in Fernie at 302 C 2nd Ave. Itinerant services are offered to surrounding communities to ensure coverage across the Valley.

All job seekers are welcome to access a self-serve area free of charge for employment related needs. Additional support and resources are available for job seekers who are currently unemployed/underemployed and legally eligible to work in BC. The Centre also works with employers to assist in their recruiting needs. All employers are welcome to advertise jobs for free through our website, which is scheduled to soon link with an East Kootenay job board.
