A Bit of History

SPHERE has existed since 2004, but has grown its expertise since 1997.

The Beginning

In 1997, the Government of Canada created the Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities (OF). In Quebec, the Comité d’adaptation de la main-d’œuvre (CAMO) pour personnes handicapées is entrusted with the responsibility of implementing the employment integration activities funded by this program. In 2004, the CAMO redefines its mandates, and the organization Support for people with a handicap exploring the road to employment (SPHERE) is created. Hence, SPHERE has existed since 2004, but has grown its expertise since 1997.
