Many Salmon Arm employers are challenged to find loyal workers, claiming a labour shortage. 

Yet there’s a whole untapped pool of under-employed talent in our community. The trick is in how we engage them. And there’s even funding and support to help you figure out how

With the goal to create a vibrant economic community in Salmon Arm, the Chamber of Commerce is building resources for local employers seeking practical solutions to workforce development challenges, particularly when hiring and retaining workers who: 

  • Struggle with mental health challenges and addictions
  • Are differently abled
  • Identify as LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous, Black or a person of Colour
  • Are newcomers or immigrants
  • Are retirees, young people or other folks with barriers to full-time employment
