The final day for the Job Creation Partnership program between the government and the North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo Association took place on Jan. 25, with a wrap-up potluck luncheon at the Barriere Employment offices.   Those who completed the program received certificates, congratulations and good wishes from Employment Services staff and others in attendance.  NTFFRA president Jill Hayward thanked the supervisors for a “job well done”, and the participants for the efforts they put forth in learning a trade, while helping with numerous carpentry projects at the fall fair facility during the past  six months.  The Job Creation Program (JCP) supports projects that provide eligible individuals with meaningful work experience to help them obtain on-going employment.  Projects must benefit the participant, community and the local economy.  At the end of the participation with the JCP, participants have recent work experience and additional skills to add to their resumes, increasing their chances of successfully finding long-term employment.
