WeEmploy Inc. commits to poverty reduction in MOU with Vibrant Communities Calgary

Unique partnership opens up access to hundreds of active positions as well as fundraising opportunities, while extending market and network reach for Vibrant Communities Calgary and WeEmploy Inc.

CALGARY, December 3, 2015 – WeEmploy Inc., a leading online recruitment and staffing platform, today announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Vibrant Communities Calgary (VCC).

The 2-year agreement represents a significant step forward in creating avenues to alleviate poverty in the city of Calgary, and is part of VCC's long-term poverty reduction strategy Enough for All.

The MOU facilitates a collaborative partnership between WeEmploy and VCC to identify market opportunities for Enough for All and other future possibilities for collaborations. It also gives VCC access to WeEmploy's innovative recruitment and staffing portal, as well as resources from WeEmploy's parent company Friday Professional Group. Additionally, VCC will now be eligible for WeEmploy Rewards, a one-of-a-kind donor and fundraising program.

Steve Mix, CEO and Co-Founder of WeEmploy, commented: "We are proud to be a part of VCC's growing community of advocates. WeEmploy's commitment to breaking barriers between employers and jobseekers will extend to include a platform of support for those who need it most. Our goal is to provide people in poverty with increased access to information, service and solution for community and social resources to serve their unique individual needs."

"This agreement marks an important milestone in WeEmploy's growing history with the charitable sector, as we look to help create a vibrant and sustainable city."

Enough for All is a community-driven poverty reduction strategy that aims to address the root causes of poverty. One of its key desired outcomes is to see 95% of all people living in Calgary to be at or above Statistics Canada's Low-Income Cut-Off (LICO) rates by 2023.
