This program has been postponed from an April, 2020 planned start date, due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The program may be re-scheduled, once social distancing precautions are no longer deemed necessary.

The 7th run of a 6-day workshop for older adults, offered by JobStart, starts on January 15, for those who are 50-70 years old and unemployed. This program is not exclusively for newcomers, but may be of value for those with sufficient English language proficiency.
