VANCOUVER   — The Chefs’ Table Society of B.C. has received funding from the Community Workforce Response Grant to support the training of 14 eligible individuals this fall at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts for its 12-week Baking and Pastry Program.

These training spots will be offered to individuals who are facing pandemic career changes, new immigrants to Canada and people currently underemployed or in precarious employment. Classes will run at the entrance to Granville Island through Dec. 16 from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., five days a week. Additionally, students will receive a knife kit and uniforms.

Interested candidates need to be at least 16, have a social-insurance number and have written and spoken English levels high enough to go to school in English. They can be immigrants within 10 years of arriving in Canada. Chefs’ Table Society will be an active participant in the training process by working alongside the school to offer industry orientation and offer job readiness training, interview skills and ‘lunch-and-learns’ to connect with industry leaders, all with a goal of preparing students for their future job placements.
