FOR EMPLOYERS: ACCESSING THE "OPPORTUNITIES FUND FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES"
Canada's Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities (OppsFund.ca) can assist employers willing to hire and train a disabled person by providing a wage subsidy of up to 50% of an employee's salary, for up to 24 weeks (a typical training period).  This is an excellent program that assists business owners to hire the help they need, affordably and with reduced risk. With a busy tourist season just around the corner, this is an excellent option for savvy business owners.  To learn more about this fund, please join us at the Gibsons Chamber office in Sunnycrest Mall on WEDNESDAY, MAY 15th at 11am for an hour-long presentation and dialogue. Please click HERE to RSVP your attendance at the FREE seminar.
 
Employer Requirements:
  • Are a registered business with Canada Revenue and have a legal business name
  • Have been in business for one year
  • Have WCB coverage and comply with BC Labour Standards
  • Pay reasonable and competitive wages as well as issue regular pay cheques
  • Offer the likelihood of on-going / long-term employment upon completion of the Wage Subsidy
Additional information is available online at www.OPPSFund.ca
 
In recognition of Mental Health Week (May 6-12) and to spark dialogue around the universal issue of anxiety, the library has partnered with Elphinstone Secondary School to host two screenings of the documentary film, Angst.
The school will host a screening during the day for some of its students, while the library will host an evening screening on May 24 to enable parents, professionals, and other youth to view the film. Because "anxiety is the precursor to so many mental health challenges," the filmmakers hope that by "opening a dialogue and normalizing (not trivializing) anxiety, we can help each other and ourselves".
