Program Description

This program aims to help overcome a recognized local and province-wide shortage of health support service workers by providing job placement opportunities to the untapped labour pool of persons with disabilities who are willing and available to work. We enroll participants with the goal of sustainable placement into in-demand positions to meet the need for skilled workers in this sector. The program will assist participants to secure Work Experience Placements to start or resume working in the health sector. Participants will feel confident in their skills and abilities to successfully retain work upon completion of the work experience.

This program offers:

• Occupational Therapy Assessments to assess skills and abilities to reduce employment barriers

• Disability related supports

• Job matching with employers

• Job Coaching

• Job Retention

• and more!
