Events & Announcements

The Erwin Hymer Action Centre

Recently the Erwin Hymer plants closed in Cambridge and Kitchener where 850 employees were affected with no notice or severance. The Cities of Cambridge and Kitchener responded quickly and offered space in both cities for Employee Hubs where affected workers could access Employment Service Providers for information and job search assistance.  Those hubs will be closing on April 12.

United Way Waterloo Region Communities will open the Erwin Hymer Action Centre on Monday April 15, 2019 at their offices on 50 Sportsworld Drive, Suite 220, Kitchener, ON.

The Centre will be open 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Thursday. Please note, Employment Service Providers will only be onsite at the new location Tuesdays from 1pm – 4pm, and Thursdays 10am – 1pm.

There have been other companies and employees affected by the closure. Those employees are also welcome to access the Action Centre. For more information please contact Nancy Bird at or call 519-888-6100.
