At Employment Partnerships, we believe that everyone has abilities and potential to succeed in the workforce, and we are dedicated to providing the support and resources necessary to make that a reality.

Our employment preparation and personalized coaching help job seekers develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the workplace. By forging strong partnerships with employers, we ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to job opportunities that align with their unique abilities.

As part of Columbia College’s Community Support Services Department (CSSD), Employment Partnerships benefits from the department’s impressive 37+ year history of providing inclusive employment, training, and community access services. Supported by Alberta Supports and the Government of Canada, our program transcends conventional job placement services.
