The Western Regional Enterprise Network Connector program started in April of 2017 as a one year pilot project. We were the first rural region to deliver the program and widened our connectee intake to include new and returning residents, under-employed skilled residents as well as local, and international graduates.  The program has been well received by both the business community as well as by residents at large. 33% of participants in the program have found employment.
