Ex-offenders; Women; Labour Market Integration
This project is testing whether offering work experience through a social enterprise enhances the self-sufficiency of low-skilled women ex-offenders and improves their reintegration into the broader community, thereby preventing homelessness and recidivism among individuals in this at risk group.
The project will identify and select six women ex-offenders in the Greater Vancouver Area and provide them with instruction and hands-on preparation, followed by testing, on asbestos identification and handling, and tear off recycling set-up and procedure. Participants will then be provided with employment as Material Sorters within the roofing sector.
