The Worx

The Worx is an employment centre concept, designed specifically to increase access to job search support tools and services for persons with disabilities.

But what really makes The Worx different from other specialty employment centres is the philosophy behind our approach.

We provide one stop information and employment services – offline and online

  • Our services have been designed in consultation with persons with disabilities
  • We are focused on reducing time to employment, education and skill training
  • We use technology to improve accessibility, information delivery and learning
  • We offer a wide range of assistive technologies
  • We engage employers and other stake-holders in the delivery of our services

  • We believe that people are always better off working and have put in place all the supports and services our clients need to make that a reality
