Youth Employment Centre returning home after flood

Calgary's Youth Employment Centre returns home after being relocated after the June flooding.
On August 20, The City of Calgary’s Youth Employment Centre (YEC) is set to return to the newly re-opened Alberta Trade Centre.

“Summer is a busy season for youth employment and we wanted to ensure we were still there to provide free career planning and job search assistance,” said Lisa Duke, community relations liaison.

“Despite the change in location, we had one of our busiest summers helping Calgary’s youth. The support from the community, and everyone’s patience with our move, has been tremendous. It’s truly a great example of the spirit of Calgary and our ability to deal with challenges together.”

The YEC was displaced from the Alberta Trade Centre as a result of the June flood and had set up a temporary location at the University of Calgary Downtown Campus to continue assisting Calgary’s youth with their career and employment needs.

Repairs were completed ahead of schedule and the YEC is returning to the Alberta Trade Centre on August 20.

“While it’s been great working at our temporary location, everyone is looking forward to getting back to normal and returning to the Alberta Trade Centre,” said Duke.

The YEC is located on the second floor of the Alberta Trade Centre, 315 10 Avenue S.E. and is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, Monday to Friday.  For more information on the YEC and the services it provides visit or call 311.
