    Employment First Model


    New Brunswick has implemented an ‘Employment First’ model.


    The employment First philosophy is focused on normative experience, inclusion, and capacity building. It recognizes that everyone has skills and abilities that can be developed and used to contribute to the workplace and to their community. Employment First is considered a best practice in disability services. It is an approach to service delivery that supports working-age adults, regardless of any perceived level of disability, to have choice and opportunities to earn a living through paid employment in the open labour market.

  • Light It Up! for NDEAM

    The New Brunswick Association for Supported Services and Employment (NBASSE) will participate in the celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October. Light It Up! is an initiative led by the Ontario Disability Employment Network (ODEN) which started in Ontario in 2020. ODEN, in partnership with the Canadian Association of Supported Employment (CASE) is taking the initiative national in 2021.
    Communities across the country will light up key landmarks in blue/purple to highlight the importance of the inclusion and employment of people with disabilities; as well as spotlighting the different ways people with disabilities can contribute to businesses in their communities and their ability to work and help their employers to be successful and competitive.
    As the only disability employment organization in New Brunswick, NBASSE has taken the lead on this initiative in partnership with the Premiers Council on Disabilities. The New Brunswick Provincial Legislative Assembly building in Fredericton has agreed to light up this important New Brunswick landmark on the night of October 21st, 2021, in observance of NDEAM and the Light It Up! initiative.
    NBASSE is planning to assist ODEN in the expansion of this initiative in New Brunswick in 2022 and beyond.
