Advocates for inclusion of people with disabilities in Canadian workplaces have released a new draft pan-Canadian strategy for building an inclusive workforce.   The draft strategy is designed to promote and guide efforts across the country to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

Working together, the Centre for Research on Work Disability Policy, the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work, the Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups and InclusionNL are now gathering feedback on the draft strategy. Their plan is to integrate the input in the final revision of the strategy, which is set to be released in late 2019.

The draft strategy is available at the Centre for Research on Work Disability Policy website.  To provide feedback, respond to the online survey or email your comments to [email protected].
