We're looking for people who care!
You've landed here for a reason. You're a doer, an advocate, a compassionate human who wants to make an impact. We want to meet you!
When you join our team, you aren't just taking a job, you're setting out to make a difference in people's lives and to build our Windsor community. You'll experience the most satisfying career because your contributions truly matter and you will directly see how your unique gifts help to enrich the lives of the people you support.
Everyone has something to offer: a diverse background or unique set of experiences or skills. Let's connect to see how we can build a better community, one relationship at a time.
Did you know...?
We hire people with education and/or experience (you don't necessarily need both). We see value in all our employees and that could come from education, life experience, mindset, heart, etc. If you're kind, honest, and hard-working, we want to hear from you! P.S. We can also help you get that diploma or degree!
We support all sorts of people, including folks who live on their own, people who live in small group settings, those who need help with employment, etc. All of the people we support have an intellectual disability and our role is to help them access their community.
There's a referral bonus! For a limited time only! If someone from CLW referred you and you pass 1 year of employment, both of you get $100 Visa gift card. Once you're on the team, you can tell others about our great organization and continue to earn for each person you refer.
Our Direct Support Professionals are part of a Union (CUPE Local 2345). The Union and Management at Community Living Windsor have a strong, respectful working relationship that has spanned decades. As an employee of CLW, you will have access to advice, advocacy, and support from your Local 2345.

That make it a really great environment to come into."

"This is the first time I've ever worked a job like this. All the staff across the board, whether it be at the offices, online training, in-person training or at the supported homes, are absolutely incredible. It's honestly more like a family than anything and it makes it really easy to want to come to work."
-Kristalyn M., Casual Direct Support Professional

I've met so many different people that I've supported and they have all uniquely changed my life.
