Good Turnout At Job & Info Fair In South End

With the city having the dubious distinction of having the highest unemployment rate in the last Stats Canada Survey, many job-seekers may find it hard to stay hopeful about finding work, but there are groups who want to help. 

That word coming from the Salvation Army's Community Housing Program Coordinator, Lori-Ann Trevors at a job and information session held in the Centre for Hope in the South end. She tells CHSJ News she was surprised by the response she received when trying to organize the event. Groups like the Army Reserves, Goodlife Fitness, Eastern College, The Learning Exchange, the John Howard Society and many more setting up tables in the building.

Trevors says things may appear to be bleak in the city right now, but events like these are a way to show people that there are organizations who care and there are opportunities out there.

The job fair was open to everyone.
