The CAPE Program
CBC is launching the CBC Abilicrew Placements for Excellence (CAPE) Program as a follow-up to last year’s successful Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Placement Pilot. The abilicrew is an organized group of CBC employees with physical or mental disabilities and their allies. CAPE aims to kick-start the careers of people with disabilities, eliminate barriers to employment, and showcase the talents of this traditionally underrepresented group.
Six entry-level paid placements will be hired in Toronto, Ontario and four entry-level paid placements will be hired in other regions of Canada, for a total of 10 placements in CBC English Services. This 12-week program will run from September 16 to December 6, 2019.
The successful candidates will be immersed in selected CBC departments. Over the course of twelve weeks, 10 selected candidates will gain valuable hands-on experience and industry knowledge, and have the opportunity to build their careers and network with CBC’s team of accomplished leaders.
Because each of the 10 roles is unique, criteria will be different for each role.
You must self-identify as a person with a disability* to be eligible for the program. Applicants must also be able to work legally in Canada. The regular workweek will consist of 38.75 hours.
For more information on the available roles and locations, please visit cbc.ca/cape
We thank all applicants for their interest, but only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
*The Employment Equity Act identifies and defines persons with disabilities as: a person with a long-term or recurring physical, mental, sensory, psychiatric or learning impairment who consider themselves to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment or who believe that an employer or potential employer is likely to consider them to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment, as well as individuals with functional limitations due to their impairment that have been accommodated in their current job or workplace.
