Organization that supports job opportunities for people with disabilities officially re-opens

Erin Boisvert became emotional as she talked about how the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) has supported her in finding employment that suits her abilities.

Boisvert – who has physical and mental disabilities – began using CCRW’s service in December.  It helped her attain a job with the City of Moose Jaw as a front desk staff member at the Yara Centre.  She has worked there since April.

“It’s good. Everybody is very friendly,” she said on May 14, during the CCRW’s grand re-opening. “It’s very positive.  I like it there a lot.”

The organization offers employment services – such as interview and job search skills, short-term training and workshops, and writing cover letters and resumes – for job seekers with disabilities who face barriers.  It also works with employers and community -based organizations to help residents with disabilities find meaningful and equitable employment.
