Work/Job Skills and Opportunities

Supported Employment is a program that provides minimum support services and job opportunities to individuals to enable them to be competitively employed in the community.

Community Employment

We assist with job searches, job training and maintaining employment in the community. Job Coordinators will work with the individual and the employer to help the person achieve successful employment within the Acton, Georgetown and Milton areas.

Job Coordinators can also provide the necessary support for a volunteer/work experience, work training and or situational assessment.

CLNH Employment Opportunities

We offer two unique training and employment initiatives that offer people with developmental disabilities meaningful employment.  They are:  Horizon Packaging and The Lunchbox Café & Catering

Work areas are developed to provide meaningful work alternatives and options. Simulated standards and norms of employment are in practice for the purpose of preparing people for competitive work routines within the sheltered work place and as a foundation for mainstream competitive employment. Developing abilities to achieve maximum potential is catalytic towards positive self-esteem, confidence, and independence.

Health and Safety is of priority. Departments follow all aspects of the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act.
