Community Partner and Employer Testimonials

Neely and I have had such great talks over the past few months about finding ways to bring Fraser Works Co-op (New West) and UGM New West Resource Centre together to help people in our community move forward. We are excited about collaborating with Fraser Works Co-op to equip our guests with the skills they need to gain meaningful employment. I love the fact that we can share our resources and work together to better our community.

Fraser Works Co-op links with our grade 12 students so that, when they graduate, they have excellent support services in career development and job search. Their staff have even connected with our students’ parents! (nwss-apprenticeship.com)
Karen Crosby - Career Programs Coordinator, New Westminster Secondary School
We have a 7+ years relationship with Fraser Works Co-op and Fraserside. We have looked at these organizations to support those in need and recently used Fraser Works Co-op to find suitable candidates for our new MATCH Eatery. The applicants were well prepared and took an interest in representing us and the support they received from Fraser Works Co-op. The opportunity to work from the Fraser Works Co-op office provided us with the space and resources to hold a successful job fair.

Fraser Works is a key player in the community. Neely represents Fraser Works on the Local Immigration Partnership Council with flair and enthusiasm, working with other agencies and community members to make New West more welcoming and inclusive. I am always happy to refer newcomers who are looking for support in securing a job to Fraser Works.

“CONNECTIONS is truly connected with the local business community. They are proactive in creating relationships with business owners, human resource directors, to get a better understanding of the skills employers are looking for.”
“I believe this program (wage subsidy) is a valuable asset to small BC Businesses. Our new employee is gaining skills and is going to be employed full-time. Our company gets some wage relief in order to train the employee and ensure they have long-term success with us. Monique (Job Developer) was very helpful and a pleasure to work with.”
Donna L., Product Development Director, JR Home Products
CONNECTIONS is a reliable partner to Ingram Micro because they’ve successfully helped us meet our
recruitment needs during our busiest season. Working with Nimmi at CONNECTIONS has also been a
positive experience for us, and we look forward to continue building on this relationship to develop
more creative recruitment solutions.
Demash K., Human Resources Specialist, Ingram Micro Inc.
Whenever I am hiring more full-time staff, I always contact Fraser Works to let them know & to see if they have any candidates for the position(s). Over the 4 years we’ve worked together, I’ve found Fraser Works to be so helpful, knowledgeable and supportive of both my company and any individuals I hire through them.
We didn’t really know this sort of program even existed, when we were introduced to Fraser Works we were intrigued, but it seemed to good to be true! Boy was I wrong, not only did they come through with the Wage Subsidy, our Rep from Fraser Works was amazing to deal with. The subsidy not only helped us get our new employee up to speed quickly, it also gave us the chance to hire him full time right away as opposed to part time to start. We would recommend Fraser Works without hesitation.
