The service operates twenty-four-hours a day, all year at Carleton University, and from late August to late April at Algonquin College.

Accessible Career Transition (ACT) and ACT to Employ
Career Services offer two programs to provide career support to students with disabilities at Carleton.
ACT assists students in career planning and career readiness, including career decision making, job readiness training, career documentation preparation, disclosure discussions, and interview preparation.
ACT to Employ assists in building capacity with our employer partners, demonstrating the potential of students with disabilities, and creating ongoing employer relationships while providing students with hands-on experiential learning opportunities to increase their employability skills, network connections, and confidence.
PMC administers a number of departmental awards for students with disabilities. Visit our Financial Aid webpage for more information on the specific terms, eligibility criteria and application process for these awards.
