When the Lil’wat Employment Training and Resource Centre got their instagram on

The most favourite part of my job is helping others achieve their goals, seeing our community adapt to the ever changing labour market and overcome barriers together. ~ Telase Pascal, Employment Counsellor

Thanks to Linnea Ward, Telase Pascal and Ruth Dick for sharing a week in their work-lives, at the new-this-year Lil’wat Employment Training and Resource Centre.

They opened their doors (at the old Spirit Circle building) on May 14 2018 and operate under the umbrella of ACCESS (Aboriginal Community Career & Employment Services Society), an Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) holder funded by Service Canada and the province of BC.

The team led by Melanie Williams, is made up of Employment Counsellors Linnea Ward or Telase Pascal, and Administrative Assistant Ruth Dick. They provide:

  • employment counselling and career planning
  • recruitment and referrals
  • resources for job search including telephones, computers for resumes, cover letters and job search, photocopiers, printers, resource information and an up-to-date jobs board.

Their Facebook page is kept up to date with new opportunities, and once a week, on Wednesdays, Telase and Linnea head out on the road with their skills, to provide outreach employment services to the 3 lower communities, rotating each week between Skatin, Samahquam & Tipella, and providing  support for resumes, cover letters, job search, basic computer skills, training opportunities and more!! This service is provided through the ASET holder of Stolo: Aboriginal Skills & Employment Training (SASET.)

Meet the team!

As Linnea says, Don’t be shy to come in and say Hi.
