Spectrum Works Job Fair – April 8, 2021 https://spectrumworks.ca/

Spectrum works started as grass root organization looking to connect autistic people with some of Canadas top employers.  Spectrum Works The multi-city event, in support of Autism Acceptance & Awareness Month, began in 2017 and includes inclusive employers and autism support organizations from across the country.  Participants attending this year's virtual event will be able to engage with some of Canada’s top employers by learning about their open job availabilities, chatting with recruiters and sharing their resumes. Participants can also engage and chat with autism support organizations to receive information on pre-employment trainings, job skill workshop offerings, social support groups, employment consulting services, and more.

About Spectrum Works - Spectrum Works believes that people with autism and other disabilities can be integrated into the workforce through education and opportunity. Our vision is to change society’s perception of how corporations can seamlessly employ and integrate people with disabilities (specifically Autism) into their workplace.
