Helping People Get Back to Work Since 1987
About the Labour Education Centre
For thirty years, the Labour Education Centre has been helping to get people back to work.
When we first opened our doors back in 1987, the ink was barely dry on the original Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. Combined with that, a continent wide recession hit. By the early 1990's manufacturing work places were closing on an almost weekly basis.
That was the environment LEC grew up in. Since then, we've learned a great deal!
The Labour Education Centre has been a leader in helping workers deal with unemployment in an ever more difficult and complicated economy. We help working people obtain the supports they need to return to employment, whether it be literacy upgrading, employment supports or pre-apprenticeship training.
We also help employers to find the staff they desperately need through hiring events, job placement assistance and accessing funding to help with the hiring and training process.
All of these services are free of charge.
