Core Neighbourhoods at Work for Employers

Core Neighbourhoods At Work (CNAW) has been addressing the employment and training needs of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhood residents since 2001. Each year, the program supports more than 1500 individuals in reaching their employment and training goals.

We have a Resource Centre with sixteen computers, a telephone, fax machine and other tools to assist with individual job searches. There are also four employment coordinators that work one on one with individuals.

Each day we aim to fill open positions with qualified individuals from the core neighbourhoods looking to develop their careers with Saskatoon businesses. In fact, if you regularly post job openings online, there’s a good chance we’ve been helping you pre-screen and recruit already.
