Open Door Group

Who We Are

Open Door Group is a CARF-accredited, not-for-profit organization and registered charity providing employment services to thousands of individuals a year, in six locations, including Vancouver, Sechelt, Squamish, Kamloops, Kelowna, and Chase. We work with all individuals who are interested in preparing for, finding, and keeping meaningful employment.

In addition to employment services, we provide unique support programs for individuals living with mental illness in Vancouver and Kamloops.

Why We Are Involved

Our story starts in 1976, when a small group of dedicated volunteers in Vancouver began offering woodworking and sewing workshops to individuals living with disabilities. At the time, all they had was passion and the belief that everyone wants to‚ and can, participate in their community through meaningful work. Today, we continue to operate on the fundamental belief that all individuals have the ability to succeed, and our commitment is stronger than ever. Our mission is opening doors to lifelong learning and career success and our vision is meaningful skills and careers for everyone.
