New Brunswick Employability Assistance for People with Disabilities (EAPD)
The EAPD program in New Brunswick is known as Training and
Employment Support Services (TESS) for Persons with Disabilities.
Funding through this program can be used to cover post-secondary
education costs. The program is administered based on a case management
approach, and support for post-secondary education will be considered
when the chosen program of study relates to a clear and attainable
occupational goal, in the judgement of the case manager.
At the time of this data collection, no waiting list was reported for access
to the TESS program. Information about the TESS Program, and/or a
meeting with a case manager, can be obtained through your local office
of the Provincial Department of Human Resources Development. These
offices are located in major cities and towns across New Brunswick; check
your telephone directory for the office nearest you.
