CASE Launches New Services and Free

National Service Provider Registry


We are very excited to announce that we have launched our new website and the national Building a Stronger Workforce campaign this week. The Government of Canada sponsored campaign will run this winter and early spring and is targeted to small and medium sized employers across Canada. It includes an extensive national print, visual and social media campaign focused on driving traffic to our website and specifically promotes an interactive search tool where employers can find specific service offered by service providers in their local area.

We also have developed a number of innovative employer resources such as the HR Inclusive Policy Toolkit and related online self-assessment, a searchable Knowledge Hub, and extensive promotional material, including an infomercial, explaining the services offered by supported employment service providers.

There has never been a better time to join CASE! Be part of Canada’s national voice for supported employment. For a low annual fee, you will receive advance notices and significant discounts to the CASE’s annual conference and training sessions. You’ll also have access to exclusive member content and additional opportunities for promotion and networking. Sign up now.

NEW National Service Provider Registry: CASE has introduced a new option for service providers who do not wish to obtain full membership. Signing up for the Registry is FREE and allows you or your organization to be listed in our online service provider listing. Take advantage of this opportunity to promote your services and connect with interested employers in your geographic region. Sign up now.

Join us and be part of a united voice to create positive change in the workplace.

Canadian organization makes compelling case for hiring people with disabilities


-VICTORIA BOUTHILLIER-CROTEAU

Postmedia Content Works 

As Canada confronts the challenges of its aging population and dwindling labour force, Canadians with disabilities largely remain an untapped pool of talent. The employment rate among Canadians with disabilities is estimated to hover around 50 per cent, though there’s evidence to suggest it’s actually lower. While some may be limited in their capacities to perform certain work, most people with disabilities who are not working — around 800,000—are eager and able.

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW

Jason’s passion for computers and technology has been obvious since high school, and no one was surprised that he went on to excel in his Information and Communications Technology program at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. But when his IT career began, he was quickly confronted with the need for a skill set that he had never been taught – or even been told about – in any of his training. Instead of finding himself in a back office working on hardware as he had imagined and hoped, he was in an entry level role providing customer service. It wasn’t just technical skills that he needed in this role, but interpersonal skills; skills such as active listening and communication. How had he gotten this far, without being aware of such an important part of his chosen field?

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Choosing to work is a fundamental human right for all people, including those with disabilities. Having a job lifts people out of poverty, gives them independence, provides social connections, and plays an important role in both individual self-worth and society. With resilience and innovation, some people with disabilities are overcoming generations of workplace discrimination and thriving in meaningful employment. This forum will highlight some of these global success stories, the families behind them, and the employers who have discovered the power of a diverse workforce.
