The Makkovik (CEEP) Community Employment Enhancement program is into its third week.
Eight persons were hired to assist seniors and other persons in the community with various tasks. Snowclearing, chopping wood etc.
The provincial government contributed $18,000 for this program to assist persons in qualifying for Employment insurance.
Two of the persons hired have already successfully completed their work term to qualify for E.I.
