The Obair Economic Society was formed in 1987 by a group of citizens concerned about unemployed workers in our community. They wished to provide services to assist the unemployed to become employed, especially those who were having the most problems getting a job. They had noticed that often the ones who needed the most help were the ones least likely to receive help.

Since then, the society has been able to provide a variety of programs and services related to employment. Funding is provided by a variety of ministries of both the Federal and Provincial governments. As governments change their policies, the programs and services we are funded to provide change as well. As what we do changes, this website will be updated so that it always includes current information.

Many people wonder where our name came from and what it means. "Obair" is a Gaelic word that means "work", and the name was chosen to represent the work that we do.

WE ARE CURRENTLY NEEDING TO MOVE THIS SITE TO A NEW DOMAIN NAME.  PLEASE BE PATIENT WHILE WE UPDATE LINKS ETC. This site is still under construction! The staff area and 'Services' are complete. In 'Jobs' the 'resume', 'cover letter' and 'application forms' areas are complete and 'interview skills' is being built. Site Map is being updated as the site is built so it will let you know what is available. Thanks for your patience.
