Testimonials

Jenny Ducharme, Operations Administrator
At Mat Master we were looking for a positive, friendly, and reliable person to fill our accounting assistant position.  We approached Opportunities for Employment (OFE) and provided them with our job description.  

With their amazing training program and work coaches we were able to find Van.  OFE worked very diligently to ensure both Van and our company had all of the tools necessary for her to make a smooth transition into our work place.  They came out to meet with myself and Van on a couple of occasions and have been a great support.  

We look forward to our continued relationship with OFE and are thrilled to welcome Van to Mat Master.  We definitely recommend that employers contact OFE with their business needs and begin to develop a relationship with them!

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the OFE organization. I have had a successful relationship with the organization for many years. OFE has been an excellent resource in my search for Direct Support Workers at Simaril.

I have attended many employer forums. I am able to present on behalf of the agency and then offer mini interviews to those that are interested in applying. No matter who I work with at OFE I can trust that they are working with Simaril’s best interest in mind.Thank you to OFE for all the support that you have given me at Simaril. You have made my job easier by providing your services.

When we first engaged with OFE we were looking to expand our operations in Winnipeg to meet the demand for our products but we had tapped out the labour market for experienced Sewing Machine Operators.  Working with the Province of Manitoba and OFE allowed us to  access a new pool of candidates.  

The OFE program participants receive occupational specific essential skills training and employment development programming from OFE.  We then provide the technical training at our manufacturing facility while an OFE Employment Coach is on-site to support the trainees and our team as we work together to onboard new candidates.

OFE has been an excellent partner and has played an important role in our talent acquisition and development over the past two years.
