Conference overview

The National Supported Employment Conference is the largest Canadian event focusing on supported employment. The conference is a unique forum to exchange about the challenges and opportunities related to supported employment (from both human resources and employment support points of view), to examine current trends, to learn about specific disabilities and available accommodation methods, as well as to share creative ideas and best practices.

What is Supported Employment?

Supported employment is a person-centered approach to assisting individuals with disabilities to prepare for, obtain and maintain integrated competitive paid employment. It works by the job seeker receiving individualized help from a support person to achieve successful employment. The job seeker, support person and employer form a partnership to match the needs of the employer with the skills of the job seeker and to assist in the job seeker’s career enhancement and long-term satisfaction, for both the job seeker and employer.

Disability Tax Credit | The disability tax credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit that helps persons with disabilities or their supporting persons reduce the amount of income tax they may have to pay. For more information, go to http://www.cra.gc.ca/dtc.
