For over 25 years the Employment Services team at Community Living Burlington has been advocating within the business community on behalf of the people we support. The Employment Services team has an amazing and supportive network of employers and has access to motivated, reliable and dependable workers.
The success of the Employment Services team can be attributed to their ability to match the employer's needs to the skills and abilities of each employee. The Employment Services team assists people to identify their skills, abilities and interests as it applies to the world of work. They provide and coordinate support to help new employees succeed. They serve as a trainer, advocate, and facilitator. Some of their direct services include on-the-job training, employment planning, job development, job coaching and job retention.In 2007, the Employment Services team became an Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) Employment Supports Service Provider. Since that time the team has exceeded their target (employment outcome) each year. The team works with over 50 employers and have more than 100 people placed in paid jobs in the Halton Region.
If you are someone who is motivated, reliable and dependable or if you are an employer wishing to hire valuable employees please contact Karen Lade, Director of Program Supports.
