Strengthen your business base and enhance your business image; hiring people with disabilities is good business. Don't lose out. Join the ranks of Collingwood and area employers who value the positive impact that hiring someone with a disability has on their business.
Most employers underestimate the capacity and capabilities of employees with disabilities. Canadians with disabilities want to work, want to contribute to society and want to live a full life. People with disabilities are as productive and reliable as their non-disabled peers; make good dependable employees and have higher job retention rates.
