Since employment and families’ financial stability is a main component for building strong and healthy communities, LASSA is currently providing the employment search support amongst our various services. The employment service is available under the Job Search Workshops Program JSW. The JSW is funded by IRCC and is delivered in collaboration with Local Agencies Serving Immigrants LASI partnership.

The service consists of two main components:

  • Individual assessment and employment counselling appointments
  • The Job Search Workshops:
    • Occupation Blueprint
    • Job Search

In the JSW the client gets an opportunity to research the local labour market to enable them to assess their qualifications and build a progressive individualized action plan that suits their employment and professional development goals.

The topics covered include:

  • Labour market information
  • Skills inventory
  • Workplace culture
  • Resume and cover letter writing
  • Interview and networking skills
  • Referral to other resources to facilitate employment like other newcomer employment services, placement agencies, bridging programs, mentorships, internships, job fairs and recruitment events, networking and volunteering opportunities and job maintenance support
