Our Strategic Plan

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Association for Supported Employment (CASE), it is my pleasure to present this strategic plan for 2016 through 2018.

This document is the culmination of several months work by the associations leadership. We consulted with members, scanned our operating environment, and considered how we might best fulfill our mission and pursue our vision in the years ahead.

Publication of this document is the end of that planning process, but it is also an important beginning. In addition to reflecting our priorities, this plan puts forth our promise to members, to employers, and particularly to people with disabilities who seek employment to enrich their lives and their communities.

We look forward to sharing news about the results of our ongoing work in the months to come.

I would like to also thank Patricia Evans, Principal Consultant with Patricia Evans & Associates Inc. for all her hard work guiding us through this strategic plan.

Employment First or Employment When?

Employment Inclusion for people with disabilities has become a significant consideration in the pursuit of greater quality of life and citizenship. Over the past several years, employment participation has received much attention from policy makers and funders, and the transition from segregated employment preparation services to true Employment Inclusion services has become a ‘best practice.’ The Employment First Agenda has been promoted since 2009 by the Association for Persons in Supported Employment (APSE), an American advocacy association dedicated to employment inclusion for people with disabilities.
