Avalon Employment Inc. is a not for profit organization that offers services for persons with barriers to employment due to developmental disabilities.
Supported Employment: provides persons with developmental disabilities equal opportunity to find meaningful and rewarding employment. Job seekers participate in an intake process that is carried out by Career Development Coordinators to help determine an individual’s job skills, goals, and support needs. The employer is responsible for employee wages and to follow and uphold Labour standards. Once a job seeker has secured employment our Client Services Department offers ongoing support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the duration of the employment.
Autism Employment Pilot: aims to assist persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder obtain meaningful, long term employment. Through session based professional development, the pilot intends to support the participating job seekers through the job searching process, developing and improving upon social and communicative goals and in preparing a personalized employee tool kit which will provide strategies and accommodations to encourage independence and success in the work place. Participating Job Seekers under this pilot are 18 years of age or older, have a diagnosis of Autism and are able to work independently.

Unlike the other two (2) types of services offered at Avalon Employment, MentorAbility is not exclusive to type of disability (meaning, anyone with a developmental and/or physical disability can participate in the program).
