Employment First

Strategic Direction

  • In our new Strategic Plan, we’ve re-emphasized employment as a priority when planning with individuals and families.
  • Spectrum Society will support employment as a first option for those who want to work, with 75% of individuals in our community inclusion services having documented employment plans by 2020.

Karen Lai is our primary employment specialist, acting as a resource to managers and teams who support people interested in employment.

Employment Stories: 

One way we have been raising the profile of employment and encouraging more people to explore employment is to share stories of people and their employment strategies.  You can see all the employment stories collected here.  Watch for stories coming out in our weekly email newsletter.
