Information about resources available on-site (computers, printers, etc.)
The Resource & Information Centre is a space that is open to the general public and all of the services offered are free of charge. We take your privacy very seriously and ensure that all of the services we deliver are within the Employment Ontario guidelines. The Resource Center is staffed by friendly and resourceful Employment Consultants who can answer questions and provide you with the help you need.
The Resource & Information Centre is fully equipped with; 12 computers, a Community Events Board, various offline resources, a fax machine, telephone, scanner, and printer. The printer is available for employment-related printing with a limit of 20 copies per day per client.
We do not create business cards for clients. Printing is restricted to black and white and on regular paper (not cardstock). If a client would like to bring in their business card paper and use our computers, independently, to create their business cards they are welcome to do so.
Finally, every week ReStart receives food from local businesses through Food Rescue. This food is divided up and then distributed to the Resource & Information Centre.
