Organizational History

Partners In Employment is a not for profit organization with locations in Perth and Huron Counties, providing support services for individuals with employment challenges, to obtain and maintain employment.

Date of Incorporation: November 26, 1992. Partners in Employment has been operating in the Stratford area for over 20 years and are overseen by a Volunteer Board of Directors.

Partners In Employment has local Employment Facilitators to assist individuals to overcome employment challenges. We help persons to find employment in an effort to meet the employers needs and also meet the needs of the individual. Partners in Employment offers services in Stratford, Listowel, Wingham, St. Marys, Seaforth, Clinton, Goderich and Exeter. Staff also travel to Mitchell and Milverton as required. Increasing service to meet the demands of those who seek employment in their home communities has been a priority.

We have worked hard to maintain our credibility with our Employer Base. This growing database represents 2000+ area businesses. This group characterizes a diverse cross section of the employers in our region.

Diverse funding has provided Partners in Employment staff with an awareness and sensitivity to the needs of Employment Equity target groups and the rural community. Beneficiaries of this awareness and sensitivity are unemployed persons who become employed, employers that have their employment needs filled and the community as a whole by enjoying a lower unemployment rate.
