The ACL Employment Program works in the area of assisting people with an intellectual disability acquire a job in the regular workforce.

We also work with employers in showing them the benefits of hiring a person with a disability. We show them ways to accommodate a person with an intellectual disability in their workplace.

Employers are realizing that people with an intellectual disability are a valuable human resource. More and more, people with an intellectual disability are being hired and trained to work in a variety of jobs. This greatly benefits people who want to work and who have skills and commitment to offer employers. It is also a great benefit to employers who need people to fill jobs in an increasingly tight labour market.

The ACL Employment Program is designed to develop and demonstrate effective ways of providing both short and long term employment training opportunities for people who have an intellectual disability. This is done within business sectors that have an identified a need for entry level jobs due to:

  • high turnover
  • a lack of new hires in the labour market


Funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick through the
Canada-New Brunswick Labour Market Agreements.

Financé par le gouvernement du Canada et la province du Nouveau-Brunswick dans le cadre des
Ententes Canada/Nouveau-Brunswick sur le marché du travail.
