Join us for an inclusive career fair for individuals with autism and/or development disabilities, created to prepare candidates for meaningful employment and connect them with our diverse employment partners.

Over the course of several, unhurried hours and with one-on-one guidance from our Jake’s House team members, our Employment Expo walks participants through in-person networking and skills development experiences – from resume building and professional headshots to interview prep and social media presence. Within our Expo experience, each station is set up with the objective of providing participants with the practical tools and confidence necessary to take the next step in the job-seeking journey. 

Recognizing that job hunting is intimidating and distressing for many, especially those living with autism, the Jake’s House Employment Expos were carefully prepared to foster a safe, friendly, fun environment where learning, growing, and laughing were all signs of success.

These career fairs across Ontario are designed to bring together local employers who are interested in building a diverse workforce by connecting with individuals living with autism or a developmental disability who are eager to work and contribute to their communities. The Jake’s House Employment Expo features a range of employment opportunities from various industries, including construction, manufacturing, retail, health, hospitality, security, and finance. 

The Jake’s House Employment Expo was designed to enable Ontario’s labour force to diversify its employment landscape. Supporting corporate Canada, skilled trades and creating harmonious workplace practices are essential to the social and economic well-being of those with developmental disabilities within the Province of Ontario.
