Ready, Willing and Able, Volume 4

People with intellectual disabilities creating an inclusive labour force

CACL in partnership with CASDA is pleased to release Volume 4 of the newsletter for the Ready, Willing and Able (RWA) initiative, which profiles employment success stories from across Canada.  Stories that illustrate and demonstrate the fact that regardless of label or perceived level of disability, adults with developmental disabilities can participate in and contribute to the labour market within this country.  RWA works by scaling up proven methods that are active in communities throughout the country and that are demonstrating positive impact on employment of people with intellectual disabilities. It recognizes that there are approximately 500,000 working age adults with developmental disabilities who with targeted support, community investment and employer leadership could join the labour force at rates similar to other Canadians.
