Show us some #SignsOfHiring and win prizes!

Have you seen the signs? The economy has begun to recover from the pandemic and the lockdowns and stay-at-home orders that came along with it. Businesses are showing signs of hiring again.

[Note: This contest ended on September 1st, 2021. However if you would still like to share photos of local opportunities with us or with the hashtag, we will continue to share them as well, to help connect employers and job seekers.]  


When you see a 'Now Hiring' or 'Help Wanted' sign in a local business, snap a picture of the sign in the window and share it with us along with the name and address of the business. We'll share it on our social networks, and you'll be entered to win a weekly prize of a $25 gift card to a local business of your choosing.   You can email us your pictures at with the name and address of the business or tweet them with the same information and the hashtag #SignsOfHiring.

There is a looming labour shortage on the horizon, at the same time as there are still a large number of people out of work. We can help connect these dots by spreading the word about local businesses who are seeking staff.

Share the #SignsOfHiring near you!

This way more people will see where the opportunities are right here in our community. Help people find jobs and local business find the staff they need. Every photo you share earns you another entry into our random draw for $25 at a local business.

So, email us your Help Wanted pictures at or tweet them with the hashtag #SignsOfHiring today!

Please make sure that the photos have no people (or at least no faces) clearly visible in them. We want to share these to spread the word about job opportunities, but some people don't like to have their pictures shared online, and we respect that.

One winner will be randomly drawn from all of the qualified entries every week for the six weeks of this contest from July 21st until September 1st. (See for full contest rules.)
