Join us on Wednesday, January 13th and learn why your business should tap into Sault Ste. Marie’s Discover Ability Network

6.2 million Canadians live with at least one disability – that’s 1 in 5 people. Businesses simply cannot afford to ignore this growing population of consumers and job seekers.

That’s why the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce to bring the Discover Ability Network to the Sault Ste. Marie area to provide tools, resources, and supports to help local employers attract and recruit job seekers with disabilities.

Discover Ability Sault Ste. Marie offers a free job-matching platform to help you find the best candidates with disabilities for your job openings. Our free online workshops provide you with the knowledge and confidence to hire and retain persons with disabilities in your workplace.

Research shows that businesses who recruit from this under-tapped talent pool experience real benefits:

  • Harness the value of innovative processes and new perspectives
  • Reduce costs associated with turnover, absenteeism and workplace safety
  • Increase the size of your skilled labour pool
  • Improve engagement from all employees, across the board

Please join us on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm for an introduction to Sault Ste. Marie’s Discover Ability Network.
