Reconnect is best suited for individuals who are actively looking for work. Priority will be given to referrals who self-identify as having a disability or who struggle with mental health.
Participants enrolled in the Reconnect program will attend a 12 week employment readiness course at the Next Steps Office.
Upon successful completion of this course, the program facilitator will assist participants in finding a paid 12 week job subsidy placement in an area of interest.
Reconnect will be offered bi-annually, starting on January 15, 2024.
Referrals are accepted from individuals themselves, parole officers, probation officers, classification officers, social workers, counsellors and/or family members. All participants are assessed through an intake interview process.
