Multi-cult disability job agency opens.

THEO BC and S.U.C.C.E.S.S launched the first multicultural employment program for persons with disabilities, which was initiated in Vancouver as a joint venture project of THEO BC and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. It has the financial support of the Department of Employment and Income Assistance.

The project is designed to provide in-depth services for individuals facing employability challenges. THEO BC's expertise is in providing services to persons with disabilities; S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has experience in serving the multicultural community.

Initially focusing on the Chinese community in Metro Vancouver, the service will systematically expand to other ethnic communities such as Korean, Farsi, and Punjabi. It aims to generate greater public awareness of the need for inclusion and employment for persons with disabilities from different ethnic backgrounds.
