Your health and safety is important to us.

Our SASET Team is working with safety and sanitation protocols in place to be able to provide our clients with a safe and healthy environment, so that they can continue to access our services to meet their employment/training needs.

We are operating by phone, zoom, or pre-scheduled appointments at the SASET EAS office.

At this time, we will only be meeting with clients in person if an appointment is scheduled with an employment counsellor. This helps us to maintain our safety measurements by ensuring that traffic through our facility is limited and spaces are properly sanitized between visits.

We accept new and returning clients!
