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.
