Job loss is a sensitive issue that affects more than just the person losing the job. Families are affected, as are finances. The Alberta Learning Information System, or ALIS, has a new resource to help you cope. Visit www.alis.alberta.ca and under the Job Seekers tab click on Job Search Resources to find “Dealing with Job Loss.”

Four sections address issues surrounding a job loss. Take Care of the Basics discusses severances and settlements and provides everything from obtaining references to obtaining a Record of Employment. Links to Employment Standards, regulations, and legislation provide legal information. Financial planning including applying for Employment Insurance or Income Support is discussed and links to Service Canada and Alberta Works offices are provided.

Coping with Your Loss provides resources and tips to help you deal with the loss and to move on.

The Explore Your Options section helps you examine your choices and transform your layoff into an opportunity. Career planning and work options are presented.

When you are ready to move on, Search for Work can connect you to job search resources and job postings. Links to practical and helpful articles are also provided.

Resources mentioned in these sections, Creating a New Future: The Job Loss Workbook and Change and Transitions: The Path from A to B are both available in an on-line format on ALIS and in printed form at the Alberta Employment and Immigration office. Drop in or call us at 403-742-7586. We are located at 4835 on Main Street in Stettler.
