CanAssist’s Post-Secondary Work Program
PS Work provides job coaches to work with participants, helping students navigate the challenges of finding and retaining part-time employment, helping participants master their tasks, achieve independence and contribute to the workplace.
What is PS Work?
The Post-Secondary Work program supports students who identify as having a disability or mental health challenge to engage in meaningful, paid, part-time employment while they are enrolled in a post-secondary education program.
Who can take part?
• Post-secondary students who identify as having a disability or mental health challenge and who are interested in gaining part-time employment
• Students must be legally entitled to work in Canada
The PS Work Program supports participants through a person-centred approach. We will help students identify what they need to succeed, will support students in requesting accommodations if needed and mediate with employers to make sure all parties are set up for success.
