About Us


LEADS Employment Services is a not for profit employment and skills development agency.  Since 1986, we have been providing specialized services for people with disabilities and/or employment-related barriers throughout Southwestern Ontario.  At LEADS, Employment Specialists work with clients who need varying levels of assistance developing skills and accessing employment opportunities, and/or post-employment supports.  We also work with employers who have hiring needs, including screening, matching, and on-boarding, and who want to save money and resources in training and accommodation recommendations.

To date, LEADS has placed over 20,000 candidates with more than 16,000 employers and has helped thousands more develop life management, employment, community access, and life skills.

LEADS placed over 1500 candidates and 450 youth volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic, since March 15, 2020.
