Assistance to Remove Employment Barriers for People Living with Disabilities

Released on February 4, 2016

An agreement between the Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Abilities Council will provide $904,438 in funding to help the council deliver its Partners in Employment program.  The program offers a range of services to both individuals and employers to assist people living with disabilities in Regina and Moose Jaw.

“The Saskatchewan Abilities Council does great work that enables Saskatchewan people to enter the workforce to develop their skills and further contribute to the communities in which they live and work,” Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “In order to enhance our labour force so it can continue to grow, one of the answers is to remove barriers and encourage inclusiveness in the workplace.”

“Partners in Employment offers a continuum of services designed to assist individuals in achieving their full employment potential,” Saskatchewan Abilities Council Regional Director Corey Hadden said.  “The individualized services available at Partners in Employment are designed to help people with barriers find, secure and maintain long-term community employment.  This focused and specialized approach to assisting people living with disabilities to enter and remain in the workforce is made possible through the investment by the Ministry of the Economy.”

The council, through their Partners in Employment offices in Regina and Moose Jaw, will assist up to 423 people living with disabilities.  These are individuals aged 16 or older who are legally entitled to work in Saskatchewan and are facing barriers to employment which may include physical, cognitive or learning disabilities, mental health issues, health conditions, or limited education and work experience.
