Beginning in a one room office at the local YMCA, the Elgin-St. Thomas Youth Employment Counseling Centre opened its doors in 1986. Originally offering services to youth, the agency’s purpose broadened to serving all unemployed and underemployed in Elgin County. Our office has relocated six times and currently is located at 400 Talbot Street, St. Thomas. The West Lorne satellite location was opened in 1999.

We deliver Employment Ontario’s Employment Services (ES) program. This provincially funded program assists people in finding employment through resources and information, employment counseling, employment workshops and job placements.

With its long history of employment counseling and community involvement in a variety of projects, Employment Services Elgin has solidified its expertise in delivering relevant programming, and continues to evolve to best serve clients in a constantly changing labour market.
