Partnerships that connect candidates to opportunities they are looking for.

As a community organization, you understand that many autistic or otherwise neurodivergent individuals face barriers to employment. At the same time, because of mainstream recruitment and management practices, businesses also face barriers that prevent them from successfully employing people within this population.

Specialisterne works with businesses to help them remove those barriers so that they can solve their business problem by hiring from a talent pool that they could not otherwise effectively access. Across the country, we work with employment agencies, autism organizations, and other community partners to recruit people into meaningful employment opportunities and to support them and their employers in their roles.

We share the same goals as you. Our objective is to contribute to a vibrant and sustainable employment market in Canada for people on the autism spectrum and for other members of the neurodivergent community.

If you have ideas around how we might be able to work together, we’d love to hear from you.

Contact us anytime. Email is always best.
