Forestry job placement offices open throughout Interior

Displaced forestry workers can access direct, hands-on supports at job placement co-ordination offices now open in five Interior communities.

These dedicated offices are in 100 Mile House, Fort St. James, Fort St. John, Mackenzie and Clearwater.

Each office employs a co-ordination officer who is a displaced forestry worker. These co-ordinators understand what clients are experiencing and are trained to assist others in finding new jobs or training opportunities.  

Eligible forestry workers will have their needs and goals assessed, before being connected to government programs or services that match them with other jobs, supports or training. This can include education upgrades, special designations, credentials or certifications ranging from trade tickets to driver’s licence classifications.

Part of the assessment will look at other factors, such as a worker’s willingness to move to where similar job vacancies are available, or hobbies and skills such as carpentry or cooking, where with additional help, the worker can participate in different sectors and trades facing labour shortages.

The job placement co-ordination offices have received nearly 100 job-match forms. Outreach to workers is underway.

The job placement offices are open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. For questions about the program or eligibility, call 1 844 778-2200 (toll-free).
