About The JobShop

Creative Employment Access Society (CEAS) has delivered employment programs and services under the name “the Job Shop” since 1995. The Job Shop is centrally located in downtown Courtenay at 103-555 Fourth Street. Our modern facility is fully equipped with the latest technology to support our client’s learning.

Our friendly, positive Case Managers are highly trained and have years of experience providing employment services. Case Managers meet with clients in a private and confidential setting to help them develop their back to work plans and to support them carrying out their plans. Also, Case Managers facilitate our many group workshops which have been developed to help our clients learn new valuable job search skills.

Our Self-Service Centre is available to anyone in the community who is actively seeking work. It contains:

  • 10 computer workstations for self-directed, employment related work,
  • a printer, photocopier, fax machine,
  • free long distance for employment related calls
  • an array of adaptive technologies which are available for users who may require specialized assistance
  • a library with more than 600 resources focused on employment and personal growth
