Join us. We gather with students, employers and other partners regularly to build relationships, connect recruiters with job seekers, and explore new opportunities for collaboration. These engagement events uncover and share ideas and methods that help everyone take part in creating pathways to employment and career success for students with disabilities.

PAST EVENTS

The Onley Initiative has been hosting events that engage stakeholders and partners in the community with a focus on improving employment outcomes for students with disabilities.  Check out this video montage of some moments from our recent Accessible Employer Showcases at Carleton University, Algonquin College and University of Ottawa.

 


Lime Connect Corporate Recruitment Reception for Students with Disabilities

Join us for a panel with representatives of our corporate partners – Bell, BMO, CIBC, CSIS (The Canadian Security Intelligence Service), Rogers and TD – who will share insight into their companies, the recruitment process and more via a panel discussion. A networking reception will follow, with the opportunity to speak one on one with partner reps and build relationships that will lead to career success. This is no career fair – it’s an engaging and intimate networking environment.

Opportunities:

Roles include intelligence, surveillance, IT security, software development, communications, HR, wealth management, insurance, finance, sales and more for current university students and professionals.
