Prospect helps people who face barriers to employment.

A job is a key part of a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, too many people face barriers to employment.

Prospect works with everyone from recent immigrants to ill-and-injured military veterans to people with disabilities. We believe everyone who is ready, willing and able to work and wants a fulfilling job should have one. We’re driven to help people who face barriers to employment because society reaps the benefits for years to come.

Of all the resources that have built Alberta’s economy, human resources are the most valuable. But the workforce is changing. Increased automation and new technologies have disrupted traditional career paths. Growth sectors require shifts in training and skill sets. New training and workplace adaptations are required to unlock the full potential of our workforce.

Prospect is uniquely positioned to help.

Prospect is an innovative, creative registered charity that helps people achieve employment success and personal breakthroughs. We are focused on building and strengthening Alberta. We believe everyone has unique strengths and the ability to contribute to our community. Through innovative programming that meets the needs of Albertans and employers, we make it happen.

Prospect creates breakthroughs by designing solutions that bring out the best in people and prospective employers.

Your investment creates a transformation. Together, we can help people tap into their strengths. By helping us address the underlying issues of unemployed Albertans, you will help people move from needing society’s safety net to helping build it.

Over the past two years, despite the economic downturn and the pandemic, Prospect has helped more than
9000 people achieve personal breakthroughs and more than 1300 achieve direct employment success.


Our programs unlock talents, build self-esteem, restore confidence, and provide pathways out of depression and anxiety. Peer support, compassion, mental health supports and coaching help us create human connections that sustain people until they land that job and rediscover their self-worth.

For Albertans who don’t learn well in traditional classroom settings, we innovate, offering alternative ways of learning, using art and Alberta’s great outdoors.

Some of our programs include:

  • Career Links provides fast-track employment placement supports for people who are having a hard time finding a job as a result of mental health illness or issues, including those who may have concurrent substance abuse disorders.
  • Prospect PDD services support adults with developmental disabilities, enhancing their quality of life through increased workforce participation.
  • The Worx is an employment centre designed for people with disabilities, providing access to job search tools and support services.
  • Forces@WORK is geared to members of the Canadian Forces, particularly the ill and injured, who wish to transition from the military to a civilian workplace. We consulted with veterans and serving members of the military to ensure what we offer is relevant and effective. The program is made up of assessment, placement, and support services.
  • ArtRecruits is an experiential learning opportunity for people with mental health challenges. The program helps develop essential employment skills through the medium of art, including time management, communication, interpersonal skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, planning and the ability to work independently.

Prospect achieves impressive results in all the sectors where it has programming.
