September is Disability Employment Month in BC

The B.C. government recently released a 10-year action plan (Accessibility 2024) to make B.C. the most progressive place for people with disabilities in Canada by 2024. One of the first actions is to make September Disability Employment Month


Hiring people with disabilities is a mutual benefit for employers, employees and communities across the province.  People with disabilities make great employees. Businesses experience less turnover when they invest in a person with disabilities as they typically have higher rates for retention and are five times more likely to stay on the job than people who do not have a disability.
