Introducing Living SJ News

There's great momentum with Living SJ partners and we have a new format to share the updates.

Each month, our Living SJ News will profile the work of our Leadership and Collective Impact teams in our Living SJ Features section and our Partner Updates will discuss key updates from our partners - neighbourhoods, government, business and non-profit. 

This keeps our communication timely and enables us to share important news with you - the Living SJ network. If you have content to share with us - or feedback on Living SJ News - please get in touch.

Living SJ's Recommendations to the National Housing Strategy
Living SJ recently sent a series of recommendations to Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development to inform the National Housing Strategy. These recommendations look specifically at Housing and Homelessness in the context of Saint John. Living SJ partners highlight that solutions need to be part of a whole system approach to helping low-income people realize their full potential and economic independence. Read more here.

In Your Community -

The Continuum Program -
A new approach to training and employment
The Continuum Program is a three-year training program that’s designed to move a total of 72 individuals in Saint John off of social assistance and into sustainable jobs. This is a collaboration between the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour and the Department of Social Development. Two Saint John employers are currently engaged, Bayshore Home Health and Cirrus Garments. Both participants and employers will benefit from this program. Learn more here.
