The purpose of the Supported Employment program is to provide persons with developmental and intellectual disabilities with a fair and equal opportunity to find meaningful and rewarding employment. Any individual that can provide medical documentation stating that they have a developmental or intellectual disability is eligible for our general services.
Any individual with an intellectual/developmental disability, who is not attending school, and who is 18 years of age and older, is eligible.
Individuals with developmental disabilities who fit the criteria, but have not graduated from high school would be eligible under the Transition Program. This is a program which we work together with the school, teachers, and parents/caregivers to prepare a plan to have the student "employment ready" when they graduate.
Our Coverage area is from Buchan's to Leading Tickles to Fortune Harbour including Norris Arm North & South and the South Coast area of Newfoundland. Individuals outside this area who require information or services can be referred to another Employment Corporation in their area
