Keeping North Canterbury Working

Coming soon to Waimakariri District are a series of workshops that will provide support to people possibly facing redundancies due to COVID-19.

These workshops are a partnership with the Council, Enterprise North Canterbury (ENC) and Ministry of Social Development (MSD) and will focus on providing information on re-employment options, financial assistance and training opportunities.20200811 - workshop photo

Tessa Sturley, Community Team Manager says, “We are really happy to partner with ENC and MSD to support these workshops. Post Covid is a challenging time for our community and these workshops will hopefully help local businesses and affected workers by providing support and information.”

The need for workshops like this was identified through the development of our recovery plan post COVID-19 and the success of workshops held by MSD earlier this year.
