Participants are supported to obtain employment once they complete the initial treatment phase of the program
They are expected to focus on their recovery at this time.
Participants are supported to prepare for and obtain employment through services including employment assessment, help with resume writing and interviewing skills, and money management.
CDTC and Alberta Works collaborate to assist participants in gaining the skills needed to enter or re-enter the workforce. Alberta Works may provide individualized or specialized training so that our participants can upgrade their skills to become “job ready”.
CDTC also collaborates with local Calgary-based employers to employ participants in the CDTC program.
