The Employment Development Agent Project (EDAP)

The Employment Development Agent Project (EDAP) has been sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Edmundston Region since February 20, 2006. The mission of EDAP is to recruit employers in the Edmundston, Grand Falls and Upper Madawaska areas and to assist job seekers in their efforts to reintegrate the workforce. References are sent by employment counselors of the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour, by case managers of the Department of Social Development and by councillors of the Emploihabilité Plus initiative. After placement, follow-ups are done with each client. Note: no service can be offered without a reference from one of the two government departments.

EMPLOIHABILITÉ Plus

EMPLOIHABILITÉ Plus is a specialized employment assistance service for customers having important barriers to employment. To benefit from our services, clients must be referred by the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour or the Department of Social Development. They must also be part of the following categories: person with a disability, mental health problems, offenders and young offenders, visible minorities, newcomers, Aboriginal people, older workers or workers who have been unemployed for a prolonged period. Note: no service can be offered without a reference from one of the two government departments.
