Our Employment Supports Program here at the Autism Society of the RMWB is open to any neurodiverse individuals and persons living with disabilities from the ages of 16+. This program aims to help provide our participants with coaching and support through the Meticulon Assessment Service (MAS) software.

We ensure that participants access employment, volunteer, and/or mentorship opportunities that will provide them with the best environment to grow and be as successful as possible. We provide continual support throughout this program; our team will be actively involved in maintaining communication with potential employers to maintain a healthy working relationship between employers and the participants.
