YES Employment Services
1116 Waterford Street
YES Employment Services (Thunder Bay) was established June 8, 1981.The service model was based on identified community needs brought to the table by a group of concerned citizens/volunteers. They realized the need for supportive services to at-risk groups in our community. YES Employment Services is a non-profit, charitable, community-based organization governed by a board of directors. They represent community services, our customer base, business, and labour as well as education and training locally.
Over the years, YES continuously increased its capacity to deliver services to a larger and more diverse group of job seekers and employers. The planning and coordination of our customer and employer services is centered around: Open access to Resources and Information for job seekers and employers coordinated through the YES Resource Area
Individualized Job Search and Career Planning Assistance coordinated by experienced Employment Counsellors. This assistance includes access to Job Search, Career Planning and Certification Workshops
Job Matching, Placement, and Job Retention and Training support services
It is encouraging that the municipal, provincial and federal governments continue to address employment challenges in our community by continuing to fund vital employment programs and services. This funding allows YES to continue its mission to assist job seekers and employers in Thunder Bay and in the North Shore Communities we serve.
