Job Development & Job Retention Team

An employment counsellor's primary responsibility is to assist clients who face physical, emotional, psychological, and learning challenges find suitable employment. This requires thorough understanding of a client's barriers, as well as the needs of the workplace. Analyzing individual factors such as education, experience, skills, interests, and values as well as personal limitations, our Employment Counsellors establish a solid conceptual basis that is tailored to the person’s circumstances, and assist in determining the direction of their job search.
