Harbourview Training Center is a non-profit organization located in Souris, Prince Edward Island. We provide vocational training, on site employment and job training as well as a broad range of support services to clients with intellectual disabilities who live in the Morell to East Point district.

As an agency which promotes inclusion, we strongly believe in the principles of creating opportunities for individuals with an intellectual disability to participate in their community, not only socially and economically, but by allowing individuals to gain a stronger sense of self worth and independence.

Presently we provide services for 25 clients, with a number of these clients being new. Programs that are offered at our center are a full time bakery division, wood workshop division and a skills enhancement program. We assist and support with gaining meaningful employment within the community and providing learning activities for increased individual skill development.

We work closely with the Souris Regional High School in the transition process of students from school to community. Harbourview also provides outreach services for six clients, four of whom also attend our regular programming.

In the summer of 2008, we started a "Learning Made Fun" Summer Program for youth with an intellectual disability. The program operates for nine weeks over the summer months. Youth learn while taking a part in a number of events such as field trips, recreation, library tours, grocery store visits and community awareness/life skills.

We continue to receive requests on a regular basis from families and support workers of potential clients to set up programs and support for these potential clients.
