It is with great excitement that the District School Board of Niagara is announcing the expansion of the Transition to Employment program to Port Colborne.  For more than twenty years Transition to Employment has been assisting individuals who self-identify as having a disability, anxiety or mental health find meaningful and sustainable employment.  Though our new office is located within Port Colborne High School, we are able to assist any individual 16 years or older at any public area within our beautiful lakeside city.   

Meet our Employment Consultant serving the Port Colborne community: Aaron Russel
