Lunch & Learn: The Business Case for Creating Inclusive Workplaces

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.

Learn about the business case for hiring people with disabilities and the requirements of the Employment Standard under the AODA. Having an inclusive workplace and an accessible organization makes good business sense.

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.

This session is hosted by the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce.
