Ontario has established a new Employers' Partnership Table to advise the government on innovative ways to connect more people with disabilities to jobs and businesses to talent.
Tracy MacCharles, Minister Responsible for Accessibility, was in Toronto today to make the announcement at the Accessibility Innovation Showcase Employer Forum.
The Employers' Partnership Table supports an important pillar of Access Talent: Ontario's Employment Strategy for People with Disabilities by engaging employers as champions of inclusion in the workplace. The expert advice supplied by members will move the strategy forward, helping to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities across diverse economic sectors and regions by:
Increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities and creating an inclusive labour force are part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“The Employers’ Partnership Table marks a major step forward for Ontario’s ground-breaking strategy to increase jobs for people with disabilities and fuel business growth with new talent. I’m delighted to be partnering with leading employers and look forward to receiving their professional perspectives and real-world insights on how to make inclusive employment the new benchmark for business in Ontario.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of the Employers’ Partnership Table. As a progressive group of business leaders, we are committed to advancing employment for people with disabilities across sectors. We know it’s a way to increase innovation and opportunity.”
