What is CNAW?
The Core Neighbourhoods at Work (CNAW) program provides free support and services for people who are looking for work, training, or education.
Each year, we help over 1,500 people work towards their employment goals. CNAW is located in the Quint office in Station 20 West.
How can we help you?
Many things can make finding and keeping a job difficult: getting the appropriate training and tickets, finding stable housing or childcare, learning to communicate in the workplace, figuring out transportation to work, or even making a resume to apply. From referrals to services in the community to helping you write or polish up your resume, we can work with you and help you get to where you want to go.
Wherever you are at in your job search, give us a call.
Call 306-978-4041 ext. 243.

Driver’s License Program
Core Neighbourhoods at Work offers a Driver’s Education program to organize and pay for the 6 hours of in-class and 6 hours of in-car training needed to obtain a Class 5 Driver’s License in Saskatchewan.
This program is extremely popular. Every month, we receive more applications than there are spots available. We always encourage unsuccessful applicants to return to the intake next month and apply again.
How do I qualify?
In order to qualify for the program, you must already have your Class 7 (Learner’s) License and be eligible to take the road test within two months of acceptance into the program. The program is open to the public and anyone who meets this criteria is welcome to apply.
When does it start?
Intake for the Driver’s Education program occurs on the third Tuesday of every month at 10:00am.
How do I apply?
Please arrive early as the doors will be locked promptly at 10am. Application forms will be distributed at the intake and there is no need to sign up in advance – just show up early! Visit us at Suite 101 – 1120 20th St W (Station 20 West).
