Supported Employment

Supported Employment is based on an evidence-based model that provides employment services to people with disabilities who want more intensive support services.

Supported Employment helps people with disabilities gain job readiness and employment opportunities, while also matching employers with the skilled workers they need. The program offers individuals access to a wide range of employment supports that are customized to their needs, and financial supports are available for both individuals and employers to help address barriers to employment. Supported Employment is currently offered in the Belleville, Cornwall and Timmins catchment areas of the province.
