About Us

The YMCA Employment Centre is a one-stop employment service for job seekers allowing them to job search independently or with assistance, meet with an Employment Specialist or Job Developer, participate in employment readiness workshops, and take computer courses that will assist them with job searching.

We offer a resource centre, which is open 5 days a week with access to computers for job searching, resume and cover letter writing, and emailing. Fax machines and photocopier are also available for job searchers.

Staff are always eager to help anyone visiting the centre with their employment-related needs. Our website describes the many workshops and services in more detail. We hope you will take the time to look through it as well as stop by the centre to see first hand the many services available to you.

YMCA Employment Centre is an employment and education program of the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth and our programs & services are funded through the Canada-Nova Scotia Labour Market Development Agreement under the direction of Employment Nova Scotia.
