Lunch & Learn: The Business Case for Creating Inclusive Workplaces @ Big Marco's Italian Restaurant
Jan 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Ontario’s Accessible Employment Standard requires you to make your employment practices accessible to meet the needs of employees and job applicants with disabilities. Learn how to meet the standard.

You will learn:

  • How the Abilities Connect Fund can help you and employees needing accessible workplaces.
  • Ways to value ability employment, including the hiring and training of persons with a disability.
  • How to create ability workplace solutions, including assistive devices, training, and assessments.
