Our annual conference brings together people with lived experience, employers and service providers to inform and educate on best practices and techniques in making your workplace welcoming and accessible to people with disabilities.
 
This year we are thinking long-term with the theme “Future of Work”. As the workplace is constantly changing, how does your company stand out when it comes to inclusive workplace leadership?
 
You will experience special guests that will cover topics that range from people – diverse workforce, to place – work morale, to technology – job modifications, and much more!
 
New to the conference this year will be the pre-conference Career Marketplace! Employers and service providers will have the chance to host a booth for sharing resources and hiring for vacant positions for individuals with disabilities
 
 
 

Some highlights from our 2017 Conference - Beyond Checking a Box

     Last December, we hosted our Annual Employer Conference at Parkview Manor. The conference was focused around the theme "Beyond Checking a Box" encouraging attendee's to go beyond their everyday practices and really push the envelope towards creating workplaces that are accessible and inclusive to all.
     We had many wonderful speakers attend to educate our delegates, including John Robinson - founder of Our Ability. Born as a quadruple congenital amputee, John inspired the conference delegates to look for opportunities over challenges and to value everyone's abilities in what they can fo to live a
fulfilling life. 
     Another one of our inspiring keynote speakers, Jean-Paul Bedard (runJPrun) focused his address on resiliency and how to overcome addiction and hardships with connection. He shared many personal stories about his struggles with being bipolar and a victim of sexual assault and demonstrated how each person can greatly benefit from human connection and friendship when working through challenges. 
     We had many other workshops covering topics like mental health, practices of hiring people with disabilities and your duty to accommodate. We also awarded our Employer of the Year award to two very deserving Companies - Toronto Police Service, and Rose Reisman Catering. This award is given to an employer who has demonstrated a strong commitment to offering employment opportunities to people with disabilities and who strive to create an inclusive work environment.
