EmployAbilities North

As many communities as possible should have access to comprehensive employment services. That’s why we created EmployAbilities North to serve the Albertan communities of Bonnyville, Cold Lake, St. Paul, Vegreville, Lac La Biche, Westlock, Athabasca, and Barrhead/Gunn.

We work with Albertans with disabilities to overcome employment barriers and provide the supports they need to get and stay employed.

To get involved in EmployAbilities North, you’ll need to get a referral from a Career Employment Consultant at the Alberta Supports Centre. They’ll determine which services will best suit your needs.

  • Once we know what you’re good at, we can help you develop a career path.
  • Along the way, we can create solutions in the job search process and in employment that are suited to your needs and will help you thrive in the workplace.
