Empower

Located across Canada and with a virtual site, this program is available for women with disabilities who want pre-employment support.

Our program for women is focused on pre-employment skills for all women across Canada. Sites are located in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Halifax, and a virtual site. Each site has two Employment Facilitators

Through this program, CCRW provides effective trauma-informed pre-employment and skills development and wrap-around supports for Disabled, women-identified job seekers living at the intersections of race/Indigeneity, the LGBTQ2 community, and/or prolonged detachment from the labour force), as well as test models to improve workplace inclusivity for women with Disabilities. As this project involves employer support and engagement, it will improve not only access to employment but also employment retention of this target group.
