About Us

YMCA Nova Scotia Works Employment Services Centre provides a comprehensive service for unemployed individuals in the Halifax Regional Municipality area.


Our centres offer a broad range of services, which include Career/Job Search Case Management, Job Development, Resource Centre Job Search Services and IT and Employment Readiness Workshops, Career Counselling and assistance with Job readiness. 


For more than 30 years, the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth has successfully worked with unemployed individuals in community-based settings in the areas of employment, personal and community enrichment. Many of the models for working with youth with barriers have also been developed all or in part by YMCA staff.

Presently, across Canada, the YMCA operates nearly 700 employment initiatives. All individuals are served with a holistic approach in all of our programs and this philosophy is most clear in our mission statement.

YMCA Nova Scotia Works Employment Services Centre, with many locations around Halifax Regional Municipality, is one of such centres across Canada providing employment services for successful job searching and career advancement.


We are leaders in the employment field who embrace diversity and are dedicated to providing an inclusive service to the communities we serve.
