We are here to help you find the job, or employee, you are looking for.

Our team is here to serve all members of the Upper Ottawa Valley community in the Petawawa, Deep River, and Deux Rivières area. Employment Service is a free and confidential service whose goal is to connect Upper Ottawa Valley residents with high-quality jobs and local employers with a competitive workforce.
