The Osborne Village Resource Centre is a non-profit pre-employment resource center dedicated to assisting clients on their journey to finding meaningful employment. We assist clients who are unemployed, under-employed, and/or those making a career change. Our main goal is to help clients find meaningful work not just a job.
It has been a long, hard journey for all of us, but starting Monday July 19th, OVRC will be able to open up to scheduled in person appointments and scheduled in person computer access for registered, fully vaccinated clients. (Absolutely NO DROP INS will be permitted.)
The requirement to be FULLY vaccinated (with the card or QR code) is in alignment with current health guidelines and expectations regarding other similar indoor spaces such as restaurants and movie theatres. You'll still be in an enclosed space with other people for an hour or two and the safety of both our staff and clients are important to us.
Call 204-989-6503 or ac.crvonull@ofni to set up an appointment time.
Remember that if you are using a floor computer or in an appointment, you STILL need to wear a face mask and follow all other safety protocols. Computer users must be able to work independently without assistance as social distancing is impossible if we have to enter your space.
Right now the self directed area is only open at half capacity for two hour bookings. If the guidelines change, we will update you as soon as we know.
We are very excited to be able to offer in person services to our clients! We know many of you have been struggling to conduct job search on a phone, or don't have access to a computer or internet, which has made resume and cover letter writing a challenge.
Please be patient and kind as we work out the protocols for the new normal. If you would like a detailed explanation of our new scheduled, vaccinated in-person client guidelines, please reach out to our Centre Director, Keith Robinson at ac.crvonull@nosnibork
Not so sure about coming in person just yet? Waiting on the second dose or the card or that two week waiting period? It's okay! We can still offer services via Zoom or telephone if you are concerned about your safety (or just don't feel like dealing with parking). The best part about COVID is that it has taught us all the importance of options.
We look forward to continuing to walk this journey with you to meaningful employment - whatever that looks like.
