Seeking Participants


The Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the College of the North Atlantic, has received $215, 000.00 in funding for a Targeted Initiative for Older Workers Program, a federal-provincial/territorial cost-shared initiative. The primary objective of the program is to prepare participants between the ages of 55 and 64 for new and immediate employment. The project includes 12 weeks of Skills Development which focus on Customer Service and 14 week work placements for each participant. Through the program it is hoped that the Chamber can match the participants with local employers who have a need for trained front line staff. We anticipate the project will provide some of our members with a pool of qualified and reliable workers to fill jobs for which it is sometimes difficult to recruit and retain.


Individuals interested in participating are asked to contact Margaret Drake at 279-2080 or
