Workers in Parry Sound and South River areas will get more help getting employment with the announcement of the opening of new community Digital Labs.
"These labs will assist citizens in accessing resources to seek employment, academic upgrading, job preparation, and job searching," says Joe Bradbury, Chief Administrative Officer, District of Parry Sound Social Services Administration Board "Each location is equipped with six work stations, printing, and free Wi-Fi access. Resource staff are available to support citizens with navigating sites to support employment, social and education needs. We encourage all members of the public to check out these free labs."
The labs are located in Parry Sound on Beechwood Drive and in South River on Toronto Avenue, at the DSSAB regional offices. The labs will be open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Seats are available on a first-come basis with priority given to employment programming.
MPP Norman Miller and Chair Rick Zanussi were on hand to assist in the opening.
“The Digital Labs have been a simple transformation that will have a significant impact on the citizens we serve,” says Zanussi.
