What's New at CanAssist

TeenWork youth

TeenWork is a unique program for youth with disabilities who wish to find part-time work while they are still in high school. The program helps participants find meaningful, paid work and prepares them for the transition to adulthood.

CanAssist at the
University of Victoria
is dedicated to helping people with
disabilities improve their quality of
life, with a focus on promoting
independence and inclusion.

Our talented team develops
innovative technologies and
programs where there are gaps in
existing services. We work with
the exceptional students and
faculty at UVic, along with
partners in the wider community.
