What is Supported Employment

Supported Employment Works... Because We Do!

Supported Employment allows individuals with disabilities to earn the going wage and to benefit from the well-being and security that is associated with having a job. It is a way for an individual to find meaningful and rewarding employment.

The appropriate level of support varies depending on the individual who is hired. Some individuals may require relatively minimal involvement in the beginning that could fade throughout the employment, in consultation with the employer. Other individuals would have more difficulty competing in the labour force. In this case, a support worker would be provided who would work alongside the individual, as a team, to accomplish the tasks laid out by the employer
