Peggy Crane, Executive Director

I meet with my passion while working with persons with disabilities, as demonstrated by my determination and dedication to found and direct this agency. We provide Employment Supports but more importantly we provide support and encouragement to people we care about. Observing participant growth and achievement is my biggest reward.

As we celebrate over 10 years of providing Employment Support Services in the community, it is my goal to achieve continued growth and improve programs and services in order to make them available to an increasing number of people who want successful employment.

I bring to the agency; over seventeen years of experience working with Persons with Disabilities in Human/Social and Employment Services. My areas of study include Counselling, Crisis Management, Mental Health, Addictions, Supported Employment and Business Development. My current study interest includes learning valuable Coaching techniques to help individuals create vision, identify goals, create a plan and identify obstacles and barriers to success.

I enjoy meeting new people at community events and exploring potential work placements for our clients. This partnership, in turn changes the way people with disabilities are perceived and how they are able to contribute. We have an extensive list of employers who have helped our clients achieve their personal goals along with community partners who also share in our commitment.

I find my job at Careers for Inclusion to be very fulfilling and meaningful. I enjoy working with our clients to help them achieve their employment goals.

I have been working as a Career Development Consultant with Careers for Inclusion since 2013. I am pleased to be able to offer employment services to the Francophone community of Simcoe County and York Region!

I am passionate about assisting individuals to identify and achieve their goals, and I consider it a privilege to support my clients in their journey through employment. The best part about my job is seeing my clients develop more confidence in their skills and abilities, while helping to promote independence and improved self-worth.

I graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2011, with an Honours Bachelor of Social Sciences (French Immersion), and my areas of study included Criminology and Psychology. My background in social work has given me knowledge and sensitivity towards many employment barriers faced by persons with disabilities, as well as experience working with many diverse individuals. My background in Human Resources has given me knowledge surrounding current job search techniques as well as an understanding of what todays employers are searching for within various industries.

I look forward to working with YOU!
