While Canada is facing a labour shortage in several sectors, it appears that the employment of people with disabilities is likely to be a first step in addressing current economic issues.

This conference favoured a factual approach, supported by figures and testimonies, which not only deconstructed the myths and stereotypes that can sometimes persist (such as the fact that disabled employees are less productive or that it is not profitable to hire them) but also proposed solutions and avenues for reflection, for a better support of these populations in employment in line with the challenges of the shortage.

Employability is one of the keys to living together. Thanks to Deloitte, Maude Massicotte, Roseph and Sphère for their participation!
