Ontario Disability Support Program Employment Supports
Candidates are skilled, reliable, enthusiastic and ready for competitive employment. Application for this program can be provided through our Job Placement Coordinators. People who apply for the program must be seeking a job that pays minimum wage or more. Everyone’s path to employment is different and it is our goal to help each person create a career path.
Supported Employment is an alternative to ODSP Employment Supports, for people seeking work experiences and meaningful community involvement. Job Placement Coordinators assist people to demonstrate their skills and talents in a wide variety of settings that nurture their interests and aspirations. This may take the form of unpaid work experiences and/or training opportunities.
