Our History

Segue Career Options Inc. (formerly The Trainex Centre) was established in 1982 with a mandate to provide opportunities for people unemployed, underemployed, or lacking the skills to become employable through a sheltered workshop environment. It was originally developed as a transitional employment program for patients discharged from Eden Mental Health Centre in Winkler.

During 2004-2005, the sheltered workshop and day programs transitioned to supportive community-based employment services. Initial funding was primarily through the Province of Manitoba’s marketAbilities Program.

At that time Segue became a provincially recognized Employment Training Centre providing vocational assessments, community-based work training/job placements, and employment follow-up services for residents living within the Southern Health Santé Sud Health Authority region in South-Central Manitoba.
