Downtown St. Catharines community members and and clients of Niagara College’s Community Employment Services (formerly Employment and Training Solutions) are invited to celebrate the grand opening of the team’s new office and community space, located at 43 Church St. in St. Catharines, on Monday, Aug. 27.
Guests will get an inside look at the new space, which maintains the office’s presence in the heart of downtown St. Catharines, and is steps away from local landmarks like St. Catharines City Hall and Market Square. The new space also features a bright, open work area and three large training rooms that will allow Community Employment Services to offer new and expanded training and support programs.
Guests will also hear from Mark Dellamano, President of Niagara-on-the-Lake Vacation Rentals and past client of Community Employment Services. Dellamano entered CES’ Self Employment Benefit program in 2015, and used the experience and knowledge he gained through the program to develop and grow his business.
Media are invited to attend the grand opening, hear remarks from Dellamano and Niagara College President Dan Patterson, participate in a ribbon-cutting, and explore the new community space.

The team also recently underwent a name change from Employment and Training Solutions to Community Employment Services. The new name is meant to better reflect the fact that anyone in the community, not just NC grads, can avail themselves of the team’s programs and services.
Funded through Employment Ontario, Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities, NC’s Community Employment Services provides support for individuals seeking employment or training; a resource centre which includes computer access for job search; employment related workshops and assistance to employers to meet their hiring needs.
