Employment Counselling & Services Program

Since 1982, the Employment Counselling and Services Program has provided assistance, support, instruction and referral for persons with disabilities to find and retain employment and/or access training & educational opportunities. We encourage and assist employers to hire qualified persons with disabilities. We also conduct public awareness sessions about employment of persons with disabilities including: appropriate language, etiquette, human rights, accommodation & employment equity.

Job seekers are assisted with job search skills, career assessments, access to training & educational opportunities, resume building and employment maintenance skills.

Employers are assisted with worksite assessments, information on hiring/working with persons with disabilities, referring qualified individuals to available positions and setting up work placements and referral to wage subsidies.

Job Coaching is also available.
