About BA


CSSD logo


Canadian Society for Social Development (CSSD), a federally incorporated nonprofit organization with charitable status. Our services are available online across Canada.


Our mandate is:

  • to provide employment and skills training to persons facing challenges to employment: persons living with a disability or chronic health issue, youth, stay-at-home parents, older workers, Aboriginal Peoples, new Canadians, LGBTQ individuals, and individuals living in rural areas; and
  • to conduct research for the development of programs in the areas of entrepreneurship, leadership, and distance learning.

CSSD operates virtually with staff members working from various parts of Canada. We have established National partnerships with business, employment, and disability support organizations, which has resulted in the formation of a CSSD National Advisory Committee.
