The goal of the CPABC’s Pre-Employment Program is to offer hard and soft skill development in both workshop and practical settings.
The program is free of charge to participants and requires a 3-4 month commitment period.
We welcome any of our members or members of the public to our workshops (subject to capacity, pre-registration necessary)
For individuals with physical disabilities looking for a little bit more, we encourage individuals to take advantage of the intensive program. This would involve attendance at all workshops plus:
- a minimum of 30 volunteer hours completed at either the CPABC or another organization in line with the individuals interests and career goals
- Check ins with a career counselor to provide individualized advice and guidance during the job search and skill development process
Individuals looking to be a part of the intensive program should register early!

“The best part of the pre-employment program was that I finally felt like someone understood my needs and that there were other individuals going through the same challenges that I was facing. Having cerebral palsy I have learnt to overcome many challenges in my life but finding employment is still the greatest challenge that I face. The CPABC has provided me with great support as well as a sounding board with other individuals who have the same barriers that I do. The pre-employment program is a great, supportive program that has allowed me to come out of my shell, find a support network and to finally be proud to say that my cerebral palsy is just a small part of me and that employment for more achievable for me.”
