The disability community continues to grow rapidly, and many people find obtaining or maintaining a job challenging. In fact, Canadians with disabilities face high rates of unemployment. Many Canadian businesses are also not equipped with the knowledge and resources to tap into this underrepresented talent pool.
On this episode of Underestimated, presented by Oatley Vigmond Personal Injury Lawyers AND Brought to you by Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, we’re talking about accessible work.
