In response to rapidly changing COVID-19 public health directives, the YMCA of Cape Breton Nova Scotia Works Employment Services Centres have suspended all in-person services, until further notice. If you are a current client, a Nova Scotia Works staff member will be in contact to discuss any future appointments. If you are interested in accessing our services please message us now. Alternatively you can email or call one of our offices: Sydney, Glace Bay or New Waterford.

The YMCA of Cape Breton has been offering employment services for over 30 years most recently under the common brand of Nova Scotia Works. 

We have a dedicated team of certified career practitioners to help job seekers find and keep meaningful employment, available in any of our three locations: Sydney, Glace Bay and New Waterford, with outreach offered as needed.

We also have a team of knowledgeable and experienced Employer Engagement Specialists supporting employers in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality; helping them navigate community resources and government funding, to enable the successful attraction and retention of employees.
