About ERC

Employment Resource Centre

Welcome to the Gateway Association Employment Resource Centre (ERC) serving the greater Calgary and Edmonton areas – Treaty 6 and Treaty 7 territories. Gateway serves job seekers and employers equally to build strong, diverse talent pools and a sustainable workforce. Whether you’re seeking a career that uses your talents and passion – or an employer seeking to build workplace diversity, inclusion and performance, Gateway offers the expertise and resources required.

In addition to direct employment inclusion and talent sourcing services, the Gateway to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Hub (GEDI-Hub) offers Alberta’s only EDI Resource Centre for Employers.

See what our Employment Resource Centre is all about in the video below.


Capacity-Building and Talent Matching

Job Seeker Support

Gateway works with job seekers to identify their talents, skills and passions – and then matches those job seekers to the workplaces that need them. We help job seekers identify, prepare for, seek, acquire and retain the jobs in which they can perform their best.

Employer Support

Gateway offers a wide range of workplace diversity and inclusion resources including talent sourcing, onboarding support and EDI resources and consultation. We specialize in the ‘how-to’ part of workplace EDI and help employers to build engagement and attract talent.


Diverse and inclusive workplace cultures are critical to attracting talent and future-proofing your business. Gateway connects workplaces with the talent and resources they need to thrive. For additional employer support resources, visit the Gateway to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Hub.
