takes the idea of mentoring to the next level!
The MentorAbility Experience [MA_X] is coordinated by a local employment service provider. In MentorAbility an employment provider is referred to as a site partner.
MentorAbility enlists a workplace member to mentor a “matched” Protégé who wants to learn more about a specific workplace or career. The MA_X can be 1 hour up to 1 day long, at the employer’s discretion.
MentorAbility leverages collaboration between a national network of employment service providers and the Canadian Business Community to create opportunities for career mentorship and a deeper understanding of the abilities of the fastest growing ‘minority group’ on the planet – people with disabilities.

New Employer Engagement techniques and tools
MentorAbility is a valuable new tool in the ‘Employment Inclusion Toolbox’ – one that serves job seekers, employers and employment service agencies, alike.
National network of employment inclusion service providers
This national initiative has been designed and implemented by Employment Service Providers just like you. These Service Providers are moving this initiative forward and working to improve outcomes for the people we collectively serve.
Promotion of your work by CASE & MentorAbility Canada
This initiative is about connecting employers and jobseekers, as well as raising awareness in the business community about the talent you represent. MentorAbility Canada can share your success stories and give increased visibility to your organization.
MentorAbility Canada supports employers, people with disabilities, and service providers
to build their mentoring skills, both as Mentors and as Protégés.

During this initiative, MentorAbility will deliver over 140 workshops and Employer Peer-to-Peer events, along with a variety of events focused on Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM).
