Are You Looking to Hire Staff?

If you have a Microboard or use Individualized Funding and hire your own staff, then we invite you to try Support Worker Central (SWC). SWC is an employment website connecting people with disabilities with potential support staff.
How does it work?
  1. Create a profile
  2. Post a job
  3. Explore available support staff in your area
  4. Contact support staff who are looking for work
Once you make a connection with potential support staff, it's up to you to move forward with the interviewing and hiring process. 
Your Will Can Make a Difference
We have partnered with Will Power, a national movement to educate Canadians on the power they have to make a difference through their Wills.
