At Work/Au Travail Employment Program

The At Work/Au Travail Employment Program follows the Individual Placement and Support model which is an evidence-based best practice approach. It is designed to provide specialized vocational assistance to those seeking opportunities to enter or reintegrate into the workforce.

Our goal is to help people obtain competitive employment through the development of an achievable action plan, coupled with the practice of coping skills and mental wellness.  We work alongside you throughout the process to ensure your personal success.

Consultative supports focus on symptom management, mental health interventions and distress tolerance/coping strategies.
