Thank you for your interest in employment (and select volunteer oppportunities) with Abilities Centre. We appreciate your desire to help us build a place where people of all ages and abilities can get active, social and creative! We invite you to check this section of our website frequently, as we may post openings throughout the year or as our requirements grow.




The Abilities Centre’s goal is to offer our summer students the best possible experience, competitive hourly pay and a contract duration that will accommodate the needs of both parties (employee and employer) during the summer season.


Major funding for our summer employment positions is provided by the Government of Canada. As a result, each Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) summer position start and end date could be subject to change, and fulfillment is pending funding approval. We will receive confirmation of the exact duration of your CSJ summer employment at the beginning of May, at which time we will promptly update all applicants.
