Partners in Employment matches hard-to-place workers with employers
The provincial government is spending $904,438 on a program to help people with disabilities get jobs.
The money announced Thursday is going to the Partners in Employment program run by the Saskatchewan Abilities Council.
The services include job placement and helping employees stay employed once they're there.
It also helps employers find appropriate candidates for jobs.
The disabilities the group deals with cover a wide range of situations, including attention deficit disorder, mental health issues, learning disabilities, physical injuries and other physical and mobility challenges.
