MentorAbility

Inclusion BC Chosen as Provincial Hub for MentorAbility Program

MentorAbility has gone National and Inclusion BC has been selected as the provincial hub! Inclusion BC will be responsible for the grassroots engagement of supported employment services providers, community partners and employers in the province to carry out proposed activities.

What is MentorAbility?

MentorAbility is a national employment initiative that provides an opportunity for education and awareness to be shared between employers and people with disabilities in communities large and small throughout all Canadian provinces and territories.

The initiative is spearheaded by local coordinators who develop and deliver a full or half day mentoring experience in which job seekers with disabilities are matched with individual mentors – to explore career opportunities and what they need to get ahead in their desired field of interest.

Who can be a Local Coordinator?

local coordinators can be professionals working for local employment agencies, educators, disability community leaders, business and labour leaders etc. Any individual or organization with a genuine interest in promoting employment and the full inclusion of people with disabilities is welcome to join.

If your organization has not yet signed up to participate, sign up forms can be requested from your Provincial Hub Coordinator. We need your participation, support and expertise to drive change and make BC the leading inclusive employment region around the world

“With the right job match and the right support, everyone can be employed”
