Government To Invest In Career Training Services For People With Disabilities In Yorkton

Released on November 7, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing in career training services for people with disabilities in Yorkton.

The government is providing $572,339 to Saskatchewan Abilities Council (SaskAbilities) to deliver the Partners in Employment contract in Yorkton.  The services provided will include: identifying and developing skills, job readiness, resume and interview development, job search and maintenance, and sustained career growth.

This program ensures all members of the community have the skills necessary for employment and are able to participate in the province’s workforce.  The program also identifies suitable candidates for potential employers and engages in employment retention support.

“The Partners in Employment program provides meaningful career training services to people with disabilities in Yorkton who are transitioning into sustainable employment,” Highways and Transportation Minister and Yorkton MLA Greg Ottenbreit said on behalf of Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison.  “Investing in partnerships with organizations like SaskAbilities to ensure inclusion in all of our communities is important to our government.”

“With the support of an employment specialist, our program allows us to use a client-centered approach that assists individuals with meeting their employment goals and employers to fulfill their labour needs,” SaskAbilities Regional Director Yorkton Branch John Denysek said.  “The individualized support that is provided to each client while they prepare for work, and then when they are on the job, is a great fit for many of our local employers that share our goal of building inclusive communities.”
