I completely understand how you guys feel. When I released I was living in Ottawa, and I asked for a computer technician course, because I enjoy working on them, and had even built them for myself. That way I could work in a call centre or even start a small PC repair business from home. They refused that, saying that there was no call for something like that in the Maritimes. He said that with my disabilities, all I would suitable for would be office work, so all he authorized me for the cost of a few online courses for MS office programs. Then when it was time to help with job finding, because they didn't deem me disabled enough, I told them that I needed to restrict my search within a certain distance from my home, because I cannot physically sit on a bus for hours per day, getting back and forth. Their response was that I must not be serious about finding a job, and they closed my file. So, after they dropped me, I was lucky enough to land a job with the Commissionaires as a dispatcher, because they were the only company out of the 50+ places that I had applied to, that even gave me second look. But I ended up having to buy a second car anyways, because their shifts started hours before the buses started running.
