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.
Canadians living with disabilities represent an under-tapped pool of skilled talent that:
- boasts higher retention rates, lower absenteeism and better workplace safety outcomes
- motivates improved engagement from all employees, across the board
- attracts an underserved consumer market worth $55 billion per year in Canada
Join the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce and the Discover Ability Network on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021, 2:00pm to 3:00pm for a FREE Webinar to learn how to connect with this potential workforce and why you should!
