Black Press Media Group is pleased to announce the arrival of LocalWork.ca, a new jobs and resume website for employers and job seekers.

LocalWork.ca will be operated by a partnership between Black Press and Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Through its chain of over 100 newspapers, LocalWork.ca has already been filling the local recruitment and job search needs of countless job seekers and recruitment advertisers alike. With its 190 community and daily newspapers, Black Press will add to LocalWork.ca’s already extensive coverage and market, and will add valuable resources and services for our users.

LocalWork.ca’s mission is to deliver the best local job opportunities for employees-to-be, a simple and effective job search and recruitment advertising experience, and the best customer service in the job search industry.

“With one entry, I was able to place the ad both on the web and in the specific papers I wanted the ad to appear in,” said Sharon Wales from CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc. “The replies I received were from a wide variety of individuals and we were able to select quite a few candidates that we wished to interview from the many received.”
