This conference will be the next step in a process that began in November 2017, when a broad range of work disability partners held a highly successful conference in Ottawa entitled “Disability and Work in Canada: Success and Challenges of Canada’s First 150 Years, Developing a Vision and Strategy for the Future.”

Since the November 2017 conference, efforts have been underway to develop a vision and strategy for the future, focused on key initiatives to increase the employment of persons with a disability. A draft strategy will be distributed in the Fall of 2018, prior to the national conference. The objective is to foster broad consensus on the key elements of that strategy.
