Career Access Professional Services (CAPS) are for students and alumni who identify as a member of an equity-deserving group or have barriers to employment.
Equity-deserving groups include people who experience discrimination and social barriers that prevent them from receiving equal access to services and opportunities. Some equity-deserving groups include women; racialized persons; First Nations, Métis and Inuit; persons with disabilities; and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
The CAPS team provides individualized support to assist with all aspects of career development including exploration, preparation and the building of skills and confidence.
