Looking for work?
We can help!
Finding a job can be a challenge, but you don't have to face it alone. Your desire to work, with support from the ACE Program staff and an Employment Action Plan, can make this process manageable. Our knowledgeable employment counsellors work with you to overcome barriers to sustainable employment.
How we can help:
Returning to the workforce is intimidating at first, but it becomes quite a bit more manageable once you’ve had a chance to break it down and prepare for it one piece at a time. The ACE program offers one-on-one employment counselling for people who are living with a disability, mental health or addictions barriers. The program is client-focused; our goal is not just finding clients a job, but finding suitable, sustained employment based on client needs.. We offer a variety of different supports including financial job seeker support for those who qualify, and continue to provide support throughout a retention phase to ensure clients get the support they need even after an employment offer comes in.
Our employment counsellors assist clients in a number of ways, including:
One to one barrier assessment and employment counselling, leading to an Employment Action Plan
Cover letter / resume writing workshops
Interview practice and preparation techniques
Job search strategies
Internet job searches
As well as additional services:
Access to non-profit resources & publicly funded programs
Cash register training
Power of Possible workshop series
Online, individualized Client Portal
The ACE Program is designed to help individuals living with a mental illness or addiction overcome obstacles that might prevent them from achieving competitive, sustainable employment.
