A Successful Pairing! [Video - 1:12] (2011)

This video, prepared by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), features a young woman who enters the workforce at the age of 27 after taking part in a program designed to help young people, ages 15 to 30, who have disabilities or face barriers to employment.

She took part in the federally-funded Skills Link program, offered through the Digby Disabilities Partnership Committee (DDPC) in Nova Scotia. Upon completion of the program, participants can work for an employer in the region with whom the DDPC has established a partnership.

Before enrolling in the program, she spent most of her time watching television. Since completing it, she has worked at a major department store and enjoys a full, rewarding life.

The Skills Link program is an initiative involving a number of federal departments and agencies, and is part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy.
