Canada-Saskatchewan Career and Employment Services Grand Opening in Prince Albert

Released on March 6, 2000

Prince Albert and area residents now have a single location where they can get

help planning a career, improving their education or job skills, finding a job

or filling a job vacancy.



The Prince Albert location is one of 20 Canada-Saskatchewan Career and

Employment Services offices open around the province. Today's grand opening

was attended by Glenn Hagel, Saskatchewan Minister of Post-Secondary Education

and Skills Training.



"Through these federal-provincial Career and Employment Services in every

region of the province, all Saskatchewan people have one-stop access to

relevant training and employment programs and services," Hagel said. "We are

working with industry and many other regional partners to link people to jobs

in our changing labour market."



"The Canada-Saskatchewan Labour Market Development Agreement signed two years

ago has brought us to this exciting time," Minister of Human Resources

Development Canada Jane Stewart said. "It demonstrates that governments can

work together to address our shared goal of helping unemployed Canadians find

work. As a result, we are looking forward to improved service to the public

through better integration and easier access."



The Prince Albert location offers a variety of resources, including written

materials on resume writing and occupations; counsellor-assisted career

planning; and computerized services, such as CD ROM software and videos. Of

special interest is a website called SaskNetWork -www.sasknetwork.gov.sk.ca -

Saskatchewan's electronic link to career, employment and labour market

information. Information is also available toll free at 1-800-597-8278.



Local access to a variety of information related to apprenticeship,

JobStart/Future Skills, and other skills training and employment programs,

basic education, literacy, and income support programs for learners is also

available. More than 100,000 people a year are expected to use these services

in Saskatchewan. About 10,000 of these people will be involved in employment

programs, gaining work experience or on-the-job training, or will receive

income support while in training.



Career and Employment Services offices are located in: Biggar, Creighton,

Estevan, Fort Qu'Appelle, Humboldt, Ile a la Crosse, La Ronge, Lloydminster,

Meadow Lake, Melfort, Moose Jaw, Nipawin, North Battleford, Prince Albert,

Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, Weyburn, Wynyard and Yorkton.



Under the Federal/Provincial Agreement, the Government of Saskatchewan assumed

responsibility to provide career and employment programs to Employment

Insurance (EI) clients. The Government of Canada is a funding partner for

these programs and services through the EI Account. The Agreement builds on the

vision of the Saskatchewan Training Strategy to ensure all Saskatchewan

residents have access to flexible, relevant, quality training and employment

services.
