Testimonials

Dear clients, volunteers, employers, partners and stakeholders; due to the special circumstances related to COVID-19, from March 17, 2020 and until further notice, our employment services are being offered remotely using e-mail, telephone, and other available technologies.

We have made an effort to transition all our services online which include: job search workshops, employer events, language courses, individualized employment counselling, intake and assessment of new clients, re-assessment of existing clients, pre-screening candidates for job opportunities, our resume clinic, among other services.

For group format, we're mostly using zoom and for one/one we're very open to whichever technology works for you.

If you're a newcomer job seeker who'd like to register or a stakeholder who'd like to find out more, please connect with us via e-mail at ws@ottawa-worldskills.org

Your questions and requests will be dealt with by our solicitous staff.

Please stay safe and follow the advice of health officials.
