LakeCity Employment Services Association is a non-profit agency that offers free employment services to people that are 19 years of age and over, who have a primary barrier to education or employment of an identified mental illness.

Individuals are required and expected to demonstrate commitment, motivation, and readiness to work towards their goals and action plan. Our service is mobile – which means that we can come to you. Service is available throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) – from Ecum Secum to Hubbards. Our programs use a client-centered approach that encourages clients to build skills that are necessary to sustain themselves in employment.

Our goal is to help individuals with a mental health illness to improve their quality of life by assisting them to gain independence through employment or employment related activities. For more information, please see the section on Services for Job Seekers.
