Encore Employment Project Launches in Squamish

December 2008

Training Innovations is pleased to present Encore - an initiative designed to help older workers develop in-demand skills and put their experience to work in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Sponsored by Service Canada and the Province of B.C., Encore offers six-weeks of skills training, individual employment counselling, online workshops, and behind-the-scenes company tours to eligible participants. The program also offers services to help employers recruit and retain older workers.

The first session starts January 26, 2009 and Training Innovations is actively recruiting unemployed participants ages of 50+ as well as "age friendly" employers that are interested in becoming workplace mentors for participants.
