Who We Are
In 1988, a Canadian Job Strategies initiative called “Mager Women Working” was started at Victor Mager School.
The program provided training to single mothers on social assistance whose children attended Victor Mager School. The goal of the initiative was to help these women achieve economic independence.
This mandate continued for a few years until it became clear that the program needed to become more flexible to address the changing needs of the participants. THE VICTOR MAGER JOB RE-ENTRY PROGRAM was restructured in 1996 after careful planning and assessment.
The program now uses the concept of individualize training based on the clients’ past work history, interests, skills, and motivation. Current job market opportunities are also taken into consideration. This structure continues with very successful results.
From April 01 2012 the name of VICTOR MAGER JOB RE-ENTRY PROGRAM has been changed to EDGE CAREER PROGRAM.
