If you’re facing barriers with finding a job, SaskAbilities – Partners in Employment will be at the Moose Jaw Public Library on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. through 12 p.m. starting today. 

SaskAbilities is looking to make their services more accessible to the public by offering these Wednesday sessions at the library. 

The organization seeks to provide career planning and employment support to people with disabilities or who are finding various employment barriers. “It could be that they feel a little bit anxious. It could be that they have a criminal record. The list is endless.” 

Allyson Schaefer, supervisor with SaskAbilities, said they’re excited to partner with the library. “We will have a career planner on site to share information about what programs and services we have to offer, and also provide intakes if people are interested in opening a file [and] accessing our services.” 

She said that anyone interested in learning more about what SaskAbilities provides should stop by the library. “If not us, we will help people connect to potentially who could help them.” 

“At certain points in our life, we all experience barriers. If something is getting in the way of you finding or keeping a job, or if it’s something that’s a goal of yours, come on down and talk to them, and let us help you figure out how to get you where you want.” 

There is no definite end date for the Wednesday sessions, but they are planning to hold them for the next couple of months to gauge public interest.
