Changing lives by creating inclusive workplaces and strong communities.
Champions Career Centre creates a fundamental shift in perception of disabilities in the workplace through employment supports, education and advocacy.
We are committed to a diverse workforce where individuals are respected, valued and appreciated through Collaboration, Trust, Accountability and Inclusion.
Champions Career Centre was established in 2000 to connect employers with people with disabilities. By working collaboratively with government, companies and local and regional disability organizations, Champions helps the one in eight Albertans with disabilities have full and equal access to career and employment opportunities. Champions helps both clients and employers to overcome workplace challenges to meet diversity standards, create mutually beneficial placements and ensure a positive, supportive workplace environment.
Champions is a pan-disability agency, which means we work with people who have visible or invisible disabilities. Visible disabilities include mobility issues and visual impairment. Invisible disabilities include hearing impairment, learning disabilities, chronic pain, diabetes, anxiety and depression.
Over the years we have connected thousands of people to the right job and helped many employers recruit and retain top talent with disabilities.
Clients tell us Champions is a supportive environment. Employers tell us Champions helps by keeping their bottom-line in mind. Both tell us they appreciate how we create a truly customized approach to all we do.
