Women’s Employment Outreach provides a range of free services to women who are unemployed (working less than 20 hours/week), nearing unemployment, on medical leave, or unemployed and requiring a career change. Funded through Employment Nova Scotia as a non-profit, community-based agency, we have been working with women in HRM for over 30 years, and we’re still going strong!
Valuing Women. Working for Change.
Our primary goal is to create a supportive, comfortable environment for our clients. Our small staff consists of one Coordinator and three Employment Counsellors, and we offer individual counselling by appointment at our office, as well as workshops in various locations throughout HRM. (Keep an eye out for our Fall, Winter, and Spring workshop schedules!)
In addition to counselling and workshops, we provide daily computer access for job seekers, as well as a job board filled with recent postings. WEO accepts job postings from various employers in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
