Over 35 years of Inclusive Employment Services! 

In the 1980's, Columbia College identified a need of a service that supported persons with disabilities to find paid employment. Since then, Columbia College's Employment Service has been incredibly successful in matching over 600 students through our PDD (Persons with Developmental Disabilities) funded employment services. 


Employment Directions and Partnerships is an initiative by Columbia College approved by Alberta Works  and funded through federal and provincial grants.   Our purpose is to develop deeper partnerships with employers to open doors for persons with disabilities to find work.  Employment Directions and Partnerships offers pre-employment training while working 1:1 with an Employment Specialist to find work in a short period of time.

We work with those who are READY to work. We believe we ALL have Ability!
