Inclusive Workplaces for Sustainable Communities
Over the past several years, our team members have initiated, developed or managed several community-based projects. These have included the creation of a community greenhouse program to train and employ several individuals who had been out of the labour force for extended periods. Other projects have focused on Return To Work programs for older workers, the development of an independent housing model for adults living with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and several community-based training programs.
