About: Skeena Supported Employment Society

Holiday Hours: Closed December 25, 2019 until January 6, 2020.

Skeena Bakery is operated by the not-for-profit Skeena Supported Employment Society, a grassroots community organization conceived to address the lack of meaningful employment and training opportunities for people with disabilities in the Hazeltons and neighbouring villages.

As a model ‘supported workplace’, you may see disabled trainees working alongside the skilled bakers shaping loaves in the bakery, or with a support worker serving your cinnamon roll and coffee in the shop-front cafe.

All profits made by the Skeena Bakery go towards fostering further employment opportunities in the Hazeltons.

“The mission of the Skeena Supported Employment Society is to enhance the work and life skills of people with disabilities by providing supported employment and volunteer opportunities in the Hazeltons.”
