Employable Me is a moving six-part documentary series featuring job seekers who are determined to show that having a physical disability or neurological condition shouldn’t make them unemployable. 

Each one-hour instalment features two job seekers who are blind, partially sighted or have a neurological condition such as Tourette Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder as they embark on a journey to possible employment.

Employable Me focuses on the strengths and talents of potential employees, with help from experts in the medical and hiring fields. Season three experts and community partners include Minister of Public Service and Procurement Carla Qualtrough, Senator Jim Munson, March of Dimes Canada and the Geneva Centre for Autism. The journey isn’t always easy, but each participant is determined to overcome their challenges, change employers’ perceptions and land a job they’re truly passionate about.
