Fraser Works Co-op
The WorkBC Employment Services Centre (ESCs) offer a full range of free job search and career planning programs and resources for unemployed British Columbians. The ESCs provide services including case management, employment counseling, and workshops. These skills help job seekers find and keep employment.
The services can help job seekers improve resumes, write strong cover letters, enhance interviewing and networking skills, and explore various career options that are suitable for you. Depending on the situation, the ESCs can also help clients apply for other government programs such as self-employment, apprentices, training, and wage subsidy.
Fraser Works Co-op also has a Memorandum of Agreement with Aunt Leah’s to provide services to youth at risk. The Co-op also delivers services to clients of Purpose Society as well as students from the POWER/Stigma program which is the alternative program at New Westminster Secondary School. Fraser Works provides outreach services to Union Gospel Mission, New Leaf Clubhouse and the New Westminster Public Library. Fraser Works is a member of several community groups such as Local Immigrant Partnerships, New West Welcoming and Inclusive Committee, Immigrant Employment Council, Rotary Club, Homelessness task force, MOSAIC customized employment services, Douglas College and Innovate New West.
Fraser Work’s Co-op has extensive relationships with municipal governments, from initiatives for youth employment assistance to participating in city task forces and community groups. Fraser Works has an established and consistent relationship with both the provincial government and federal government. As funders for our program they have been instrumental in ensuring that services have been accessible and free.
