Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation (AWiC)


AWIC’s greatest strength is our comprehensive regional community representation. Our Board of Directors and project partners represent a diverse range of constituency groups.

Drawing on the expertise of such a broad cross section of our community enables AWIC to better identify and address existing and anticipated labour force needs.


AWIC is currently seeking nominations for volunteer Board Members to strengthen its existing board. We are looking for board members from the following sectors that have knowledge in the areas of employment, training and education or economic development: 

  • Business/Industry
  • Health Care
  • Youth (18 to 29 years of age)
  • Indigenous
  • Francophone (with related experience)

AWIC Board Members should be engaged in their local communities while at the same time be able to bring a regional perspective to their decision-making process. Board Members are to attend a minimum of 6 meetings a year or as special meetings are struck. Physical attendance at meetings may not always be required as teleconferencing or videoconferencing can be made available.

Those interested in being considered for selection by the nomination committee for a position on the board should forward a summary of their qualifications and resume to:
