Connections Program is a partnership between Chamber of commerce and the Fraser Works Co-operative that helps businesses in New Westminster hire local talent. This program gives businesses in Metro Vancouver a chance to meet qualified candidates that they might not have otherwise considered as well as local residents the chance to apply for jobs in their communities.
The program is located in the Chamber’s offices and work closely with Chamber staff. This initiative is part of the Fraser Work Co-op’s efforts to better serve employers and achieve higher employment outcomes for job seekers.
The Fraser Works Co-op provides employment services in New Westminster and Eastern Burnaby. It is owned by four community organizations – AWARE Society, Fraserside Community Services Society, MOSAIC and Pacific Community Resources Society. The New Westminster WorkBC Centre is at 519 7th Street.
The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce is the main voice for business in New Westminster. For 133 years, it has been a catalyst for business people to work together to create a strong and vibrant economy and enhance the quality of life in our community.
