National AccessAbility Week

Disability Inclusion 2021: Leaving no one behind.

A message from our President and CEO:

We kick of NAAW in 2021 in a state of anticipation. We are enthusiastic to see Canada build back better during the recovery of COVID-19 to ensure inclusion of all people with disabilities by recognizing the talent that is apparent in our communities. We are supportive of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan set forth by the federal government, and are happy to bring all the work from the Disability and Work in Canada initiative to help shape the Federal Employment Strategy for People with Disabilities. And while it is a week of celebration, we recognize how COVID has unmasked the tiered support to our communities and how much more work we need to do to ensure meaningful and equitable employment is realized for people with disabilities in Canada.

New Funding Announcement

CCRW hosted Minister Qualtrough and MP Robert Oliphant on Tuesday, June 1st at 12h30 pm EST, as they will announced NEW funding under the YESS program.  The Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS) is the Government of Canada’s commitment to helping young people particularly those facing barriers to employment, get the information and gain the skills, work experience and abilities they need to make a successful transition into the labour market. CCRW’s Youth the Future (YTF) program is funded in part by YESS and moves at full speed into this new 3-year commitment, supporting young jobseekers with disabilities in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada.

CCRW will continue the celebration with a Virtual Salute to our CLIENTS, our PARTICIPANTS, and our PARTNERS featuring the highlights we, as an organization, have CELEBRATED and RECOGNIZED throughout the year.

Listen in on the journeys, and discover the meaningful impacts that kept persons with disabilities moving forward while navigating new COVID-19 barriers. Explore the new services created to help employers and employees come together as a team to adapt throughout a global pandemic.
