Mary Morris: Executive Director
If you have a question, inquiry, to book training or schedule an appointment with our Employer Advisors, call us. We can decide together what will appropriately fit your business needs.
Our Employer Advisors are happy to visit your work site. If there are a number of people in your organization for us to meet with, a business location site visit can be helpful. Our OEA Advisors travel throughout the province. Where overnight travel is required by the OEA Advisor, the Employer is invoiced directly for those travel expenses.
To seek assistance with an individual file please call our general office number at 902.442.9366. You will be assisted through our intake process and an OEA Advisor will call you by the next business day. We will initially attempt to answer your immediate questions; however, if longer or more complex support is required, your file is assigned to an Employer Advisor.
OEA does not provide legal assistance,opinion or representation. If we believe the file support you require is outside our scope or that you would benefit from legal advice we will advise you.
We offer general group and customized training for employers on a cost recovery basis.
In January of each year we advertise our Training Schedule and in March we advertise our Employer Conference. Our training is held at our office in Bedford, NS. OurEmployer Conference is usually held in May or June and is 2 days in length. Beginning in 2016 we also held a fall conference.
Customized Training can be developed by OEA and arranged at an Employer’s worksite or for a Business Association. Some costs do apply. Call us to discuss your customized training needs!
OEA welcomes the opportunity to consult with employers and business groups around the province every year.
We use the feedback to advocate for system change and improvements.
If there is an issue you believe we should be looking at, let us know. Call us!
