A wage subsidy program can put the perfect employee within your reach. These programs may offer your business incentives to hire individuals who need additional on-the-job training.

As many of you are aware, there have been some break ins again in some of our local businesses. As security is vital in preventing and deterring break ins, the Barrhead Chamber of Commerce has worked out a program with Bolt Security.

Bolt has a long reputation as a reputable supplier to many large and small businesses and they are an Alberta based company. We have worked out a program exclusively for Chamber members that you will receive up to 15% discount on any hardware that they install when you sign up for a monitoring contract.

Do you have a RAP student or Work Experience Student working for you? Are they going above your expectations? Would you like to recognize this student? If so, nominate them for Student of the Month. This is part of the Chamber’s CNG program to help engage and recognize outstanding students in the workforce.

Pembina West is sponsoring the Student of the Month for November so please take a moment to sponsor a student. I have attached the form. You can fax it back to me at 780-674-6526 or e mail me at
