As An Employer...

Our employment support staff work hard to match every employer's needs with people's interests and abilities. We work together to define how the position could evolve to enhance each person's full potential. We provide job shadowing for initial training when interested. We act as a resource, and can return for future training needs.

Many training events offered are modified for your employee with a disability. You'll find we are unique because our employment services continue beyond the date of hire.

We will work with you to provide ample support and phase out once all parties are comfortable. We can add support where necessary at specific times like at year-end inventory period by request. We are just a phone-call-away. Remember the rapport is your choice!

How Capable are Our People
Most people have a modified grade twelve or basic/general level education. In the past, people we have supported have found full and part-time jobs in:

  • Interior & Exterior Maintenance
  • Clerical (office assistant, filing, mailing, shredding, envelopes, bank deposits)
  • Retail
  • Construction
  • Factories
  • Unionized work places
  • Food Services
  • Recycling
All services are FREE
of charge!

Many people we support choose to live very independently and some have a valid drivers license.
