BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY
Enderby & District Credit Union Saluted by Community Groups
Enderby & District Credit Union wrapped up its 63rd annual general meeting on Tuesday, April
26 with an outpouring of tributes from community groups. The groups included Kingfisher
Interpretive Centre, MacKenzie Camp, Enderby & District Community Resource Centre and the
River Ambassador Program. EDCU presented major sponsorships to these and many other
deserving community groups, programs and projects this past year, totaling more than $20,000.

MacKenzie Camp, which received a major funding boost from Enderby & District Credit Union,
was represented at the meeting by its president Lorraine Powell. “The gift you have given us
and our community is incredible – it will help us inspire the kids who attend our camps to be
whatever they want to be. We want to say a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The Kingfisher Interpretive Centre, represented by its chair Neil Brookes had a similar message.
“In this day and age, places like Kingfisher are more important than ever. Kids are unmoored
from the natural world, and we want to inspire them to get in touch. We appreciate this funding



May 20, 2011                                                                 Page 3 of 11
from EDCU so much, because some of our other funding sources didn’t come through. You’ve
helped Kingfisher connect with 8,000 people every year, and we’re really very grateful for that.”

The Enderby & District Community Resource Centre’s programs coordinator Marlene Mydske
also paid special tribute to EDCU for its ongoing financial support as well as a recent donation
from its staff members, who personally raised and donated more than $400. While displaying
brown bag dinners which are distributed to needy community parents, Ms. Mydske thanked
EDCU and its members, “EDCU’s leadership has brought about positive change in this
community – thank you to all of you.”

The River Ambassador Program, represented by coordinator Madison Giesbrecht provided the
EDCU annual general meeting attendees with an overview of the program’s success. Last
summer, the ambassadors spoke to more than 4,100 river users on topics relating to safe and
respectful use of the river. The program was made possible by a number of local contributors,
including EDCU. “The contribution from EDCU and others in our community have been vital for
this program – thank you for your help protecting our beautiful river,” said Ms. Giesbrecht.

Ted Morrison, general manager of Enderby & District Credit Union, provided members at the
annual general meeting with a summary of 2010. “Over the past several years, a lot has
changed at your credit union. It is you as credit union members; you as credit union staff; and
you as credit union directors that give this credit union the ability to make changes for the good
of all. Be very proud of yourselves! There is no doubt in my mind that we as a cooperative
organization make a big and very positive difference. Always remember you did that. You make
it happen over and over again,” he concluded.

BUSINESS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
New Training Programs Fill Skills Gap
It’s estimated that by 2019, over three-quarters of all jobs will require at least some post-
secondary education. To give low-skilled employees a chance to move up and fill these jobs,
BCs new $3-million Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program will help local businesses and non-
profit organizations train current staff to better meet the demands of a changing labour market.

The pilot program is designed to help low-skilled employees who lack post-secondary training
toward a degree or other credentials, gain new skills to improve productivity, take on new
responsibilities and advance their careers. The Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program targets
four high-growth sectors where the demand for skilled workers over the next decade will be
strong: transportation and warehousing; manufacturing; health care and social assistance; and
professional, scientific and technical services.

The Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program focuses on assisting low-skilled workers within
businesses or non-profit organizations with less than 100 employees. Through the pilot, up to
$1,500 per employee or $7,500 per employer is available to pay for tuition fees and purchase
training services, books, manuals and other study materials. The program is expected to serve
at least 1,200 low skilled employees around B.C. The Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program is
one of many programs funded through the Canada-B.C. Labour Market Agreement that are
designed to help meet the current and future labour demands of our economy.

Funding also supports training for employed individuals who are low skilled, in particular,
employed individuals who do not have a high school diploma or a recognized certification to
reach their full potential in the current marketplace.

Learn more by visiting the Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program website.

Government Renews Small Business Internship Program
The Government of Canada has renewed its investment of $3.5 million to create hundreds of
internships for post-secondary students across Canada through Canada's Small Business
Internship Program (SBIP). Community Futures British Columbia will be the delivery agent for
the Industry Canada Small Business Internship Program in 2011 and 2012. Applications are
available for programs starting in the summer of 2011.

The Small Business Internship Program (SBIP) helps small- and medium-sized businesses
(SMEs) expand their e-business strategy beyond simply having email or an internet site. An
active e-business strategy can help any business prosper, particularly during times of economic
instability. SBIP provides qualified SMEs with funding to hire a student intern for 12 weeks to
assist in adopting information and communications technologies (ICT). It has the double benefit
of helping participating SMEs increase their productivity and competitiveness and giving
valuable, hands-on job experience to promising youth ages 15 to 30. For more information, visit
http://www.communityfutures.ca/sbip/index.php.

Youth Skills BC Hiring and Training Incentives
Youth Skills BC is currently offering a new program which provides BC employers with a $2000
hiring incentive to hire eligible youth between the ages of 15 and 29. An employer may hire up
to three employees under this program. The Youth Skills BC program, funded by the Ministry of
Regional Economic and Skills Development, has been designed to be easy-to-use for



May 20, 2011                                                                 Page 6 of 11
employers and employees. There is an additional training allowance of up to $1000 should an
employer wish to train their new employee(s) externally.

To qualify for YSBC, the potential employee must be between the ages of 15 and 29, must not
be currently received EI and must not have received EI within the past 36 months or 60 months
for a parental claim, must not be a full-time student or returning to school, must be a resident of
BC and legally entitled to work in Canada, and must not be participating in any other
government funded program. To qualify for YSBC, the potential employer must have been in
business for a minimum of one year and must be in good standing with WCB. To learn more

WARREN’S SAFETY TIP OF THE MONTH
Courtesy of Warren Smith of RCMP Safe Communities

Do you know when to call for emergency service or assistance? Do you know what kinds of
information will make your emergency call go as smoothly as possible?

You should call Emergency Services for emergencies where an immediate response is
required; when someone's life is in danger or in a life threatening situation where every second
counts; when a crime is in progress e.g. a fight, a theft, a break and entry, a prowler, a
dangerous driver is on the road putting others at risk; and when there has been a motor vehicle
accident with injuries.




May 20, 2011                                                                   Page 7 of 11
If you need to call for Emergency Assistance, you should know your location; let the operator
take control of the conversation and get all the necessary information; answer all the questions;
stay calm; and remain where you are unless you are in danger.

DO NOT use text messaging as a method to call 911 for emergency services assistance. Text
messaging does not allow our operators to ask questions and understand the urgency of the
public's need.

DO NOT program 911 into any telephone as this may lead to accidental calls.

DO NOT store your mobile phone in your pocket while driving or in a car to avoid accidental
calls to 911.

If you call 911 by mistake, let the emergency operator know there is no emergency as this will
save precious time for attending to other real emergencies and DO NOT hang up the phone as
public safety policy dictates the operator must call back to confirm there is no emergency.

For more information, contact Warren Smith, Rural Programs Coordinator, at 250-550-7843 or
wsmith@vernon.ca.
