Our History

Since 1979, Selections has been serving individuals with developmental disabilities. Over the past four decades, it has evolved significantly in response to the needs of its program participants, employer partners, and the Edmonton area communities in which it operates. Selections got its start as a vocational program funded by the Edmonton Separate School Board. Operating exclusively out of the South Edmonton Bottle Depot, Selections’ training program supported students with developmental disabilities to learn employable skills, strong work ethic, and confidence in their abilities. Following completion of the training, students were assisted to secure permanent employment or volunteer positions in their communities. In 1989, to accommodate a broader scope of program participant interests and desires, Selections adopted a new, community-based service model to better meet its primary goals: fostering inclusive communities and workplaces and supporting the self-actualization of individuals with developmental disabilities by providing opportunities to participate in employment opportunities tailored to their needs and interests.

 

Our Team

The Selections' team is made up of dynamic Board and staff members who are passionate about discovering the potential that exists in every person, creating opportunities and solutions so that all can thrive, and building inclusive communities.
