A Success Story – Crystal-Anne Leblanc

Going from not graduating high school to being A VON nurse can be a lengthy and difficult journey. For Crystal-Anne Leblanc, it was a life changing experience that she wouldn’t trade for anything. Crystal is certain that a visit to Futureworx in 1998 was the beginning of a journey that would lead to drastic life changes that would result in a better life for her and her children. 

A Success Story – Tyler Sutherland

“It’s been a good experience” are the words used by Tyler Sutherland to describe his work at the Corridor Co-op Grocery Store in Milford, NS.  Tyler was hired at the Co-op by manager Mike Wray through a program called Opportunities Funds, which offers support for hiring persons with disabilities through a wage subsidy. This program allows time for the employer to train a new employee who might need extra time to learn new skills required to do the job. 

A Success Story – Gale Compagnon

I have lived all over this country, but something about Nova Scotia kept pulling me back here.  After settling into East Hants once again, it was time to look for work.  It was clear that without having an updated education, my resume just wasn’t appealing. I did a lot of research and found a great service center called Futureworx. 

A Success Story – Phil Moxsom

Darren Schriver, Owner and Operator of Foodland in Stewiacke, first became acquainted with Futureworx when using the services to post a job advertisement. Darren was in need of a Meat Cutter and was looking for someone to quickly fill the vacancy. The job advertisement was circulated to clients by staff of Futureworx Job Search Centre in Elmsdale. 

A Success Story – Janice Rideout

“I’m doing more than just a job. I have a purpose”. These are the words of former Futureworx client Janice Rideout, who successfully secured employment with the support of Futureworx and an Employment Nova Scotia wage subsidy program. Janice was hired by manager Ross Young at Corridor Community Options for Adults (CCOA) for a position which was funded under the START Program.
