A Charitable Operating Foundation with a Mission

The Sinneave Family Foundation

Great ideas are born from great partnerships. In 2014, The Sinneave Family Foundation, Autism Speaks Canada and the Government of Canada's Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities, made a commitment to improve employment outcomes for individuals with autism through the Worktopia Project. EmploymentWorks, a legacy of that project, is a shining example of what can be accomplished when a national network of agencies share this same commitment and vision. As of January 2019, EmploymentWorks has reached over 500 individuals with autism across Canada. The program has benefited from successful delivery at 10 agencies and the learnings of over 60 program cycles. The best news? We didn't stop there. Our shared accomplishments resulted in a renewed commitment to expanding program delivery to include individuals with other disabilities and to serve rural and less populated areas. I invite you to explore this website to see how you can get involved in the momentum of EmploymentWorks.

Building momentum beyond the program. On behalf of The Sinneave Family Foundation and Autism Speaks Canada, I would also like to invite you to visit www.worktopia.ca to learn more about a national network working together to CHANGE THE ODDS of employment success for individuals with autism. Every voice counts.
