Casual (Day) Labour
Registered Bissell Centre community members seeking short-term employment can access our Casual Labour program, where Bissell Centre connects them with employers through a variety of job placements opportunities. All of our Employment Programs, including Casual Labour, are free of charge to both employers or workers.
Typically, workers are paid in cash daily. Individuals referred to employers are provided a healthy bagged lunch and basic safety equipment such as work gloves, safety glasses, hard hats, and coveralls when available. Highly motivated workers are often offered longer term or permanent employment.
