New websites for YCS and WorkBC

YCS has recently taken on the role of Contract Service Provider for WorkBC Employment Services in the North Thompson

Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) and WorkBC Employment Services in the North Thompson are ringing in the New Year with newly redesigned websites.

According to YCS Financial Administrator, Jackie Enfield, “The YCS website needed to be refreshed with a more modern design and functionality.”

YCS has recently taken on the role of Contract Service Provider for WorkBC Employment Services in the North Thompson.

It was therefore also timely to refresh the websites for Clearwater and Barriere Employment Services, who deliver WorkBC Services in our valley. The YCS and WorkBC websites share a similar design to inform end users that the organizations are related.

The Yellowhead Community Services website ( highlights all of the programs and services offered through YCS, including the services offered through the Community Resource Centre, which is now under the management of YCS.

Additionally, visitors can find information regarding upcoming YCS events, latest news, volunteer and employment opportunities, Annual General Meetings, and more. There is a photo gallery that compliments the site’s colourful new design, which is full of photos showcasing many of our local citizens and landscapes.

In addition to a dedicated web page, funding partners are highlighted through rotating logos on the homepage.

The greater visual prominence expresses Yellowhead Community Service’s gratitude for the ongoing financial assistance which allows YCS to develop and provide a large variety of services and supports for residents of the North Thompson Valley.

The WorkBC website is a joint website for both Clearwater and Barriere Employment Services. The website can be accessed though each centre’s domain ( or, but these will take you to a single site for both organizations.

The WorkBC website offers a single site for employers and job-seekers within the North Thompson, and has been laid out to be easy to navigate.

Employers can begin the process to “Post a Job” with the click of a single button on the homepage.

If you are looking for work, you can straightforwardly “Find a Job” in the job postings section, which indicates whether jobs are posted in Barriere, Clearwater, or both. The new WorkBC website offers everything employers and job seekers throughout the valley need in one central location.

Additionally, the WorkBC website highlights services offered, upcoming events and workshops, funding information, work search sites, and local training opportunities.

Public input regarding both websites is appreciated to make these tools better for the members of our communities.

Feedback can be emailed to

YCS and WorkBC hope you enjoy exploring their new websites.
