Building a Stronger Workforce provides employers with quick access to online tools, training resources, best practices and the FREE services offered by our network of employment service providers—all with just one click!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][cs_element_layout_row _id=”7″ ][cs_element_layout_column _id=”8″ ][cs_element_image _id=”9″ ][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”10″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”11″ ][cs_content_seo]The goals of the project are simple, yet significant: \n\nSubheadline space\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_layout_grid _id=”12″ ][cs_element_layout_cell _id=”13″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”14″ ][cs_content_seo]Raise awareness.\n\nSubheadline space\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_text _id=”15″ ][cs_content_seo]Building a Stronger Workforce clearly communicates the benefits and opportunities of inclusive employment.

We recognize that it has especially affected persons with disabilities and increased inequalities in Canada’s workforce, so Building a Stronger Workforce will help job-seekers with disabilities find and keep jobs, while also improving workplaces. There has never been a more crucial time for organizations to be resilient, and we believe that inclusion and supported employment will enable the Canadian workforce to be more adaptable in the face of change.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_headline _id=”25″ ][cs_content_seo]To learn more about Building a Stronger Workforce, click here.\n\nSubheadline space\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_text _id=”26″ ][cs_content_seo]You can also follow along with us on social media!
