Champions Career Centre

At Champions, we work with individuals with disabilities who are seeking meaningful work and employers who recognize that qualified, enthusiastic people with disabilities can help solve the growing need for top talent in Calgary. Our goal is to connect the right person to the right job.

Our Story

Why We Exist

Champions Career Centre was established in 2000 to connect employers with people with disabilities. By working collaboratively with government, companies and local and regional disability organizations, Champions helps the one in eight Albertans with disabilities have full and equal access to career and employment opportunities. Champions helps both clients and employers to overcome workplace challenges to meet diversity standards, create mutually beneficial placements and ensure a positive, supportive workplace environment.

“You went beyond the normal call of duty by being available to take my phone calls and meet with me. You listened to my concerns and fears and you helped me to calm down and put a business perspective on things. Your experience in human resources was a great resource which helped me understand the employer’s side of the job hiring process.” Champions Client.

What You Can Do

Since 2000, Champions Career Centre has been helping to eliminate barriers to employment for thousands of Calgarians with a disability.

Thanks to donors like you, we are working towards building a society in which physical and mental differences among people are seen and accepted as normal and expected, not abnormal or unusual. We prefer to advocate for a social structure that focuses on including all people in the social fabric, rather than drawing an artificial line that separates “disabled people” from others.
