Motivated to succeed

Photograph of PatrickPatrick moved to Fort McMurray with hopes of quickly finding employment in a camp. Reality set in, when he arrived with no job, no income and no housing.

Patrick visited the Fort McMurray Alberta Works Centre on a regular basis for help with his job search. Alberta Works staff assisted Patrick and referred him to Choices for additional employment services and training.

With the support of staff at Alberta Works and Choices, Patrick has been able to secure housing and was accepted into the Hospitality and Food/Beverage Server training program offered by Choices.

Patrick is motivated and in good spirits.

“The Alberta Works staff helped me out a lot. I was down and now…I am happy and hoping to get employment in a camp” said Patrick.

Choices is funded by Alberta Works. For more information about Choices, please visit
