Community Partnership Program
Connecting with job seekers in our local communities
At SRG, we’re all about helping people and building solid relationships in our communities. In 2014, we launched our Community Partnership Program, to help bridge some of the current labour market gaps. We partnered with local non-profit employment organizations to reach a larger group of job seekers, creating awareness, educating and assisting them in their employment search. Our program consists of free regular interactive sessions hosted by SRG, onsite at our partners’ facilities. We offer a variety of topics and allow job seekers to speak directly with an SRG representative, to learn more about current employment opportunities. Our network includes over 25 partners throughout southwestern Ontario, ranging from educational institutions to community resources and government agencies. Whether you’re a job seeker or a potential partner, the benefits of this program are endless.
