Access Funding and Supports to Become an Inclusive Employer

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Did you know that as an employer you can get free help finding candidates, access wage subsidies, get free job coaching for new employees, assistive technology, and training? In celebration of Disability Employment Month in B.C., this webinar will focus on where employers can obtain support and why employing persons with disabilities is good for business.

Join our panel presentation moderated by Trish Kelly of the Presidents Group, along with Rebecca Purdy from the Open Door Group, Nate Toevs from Neil Squire Society, and Dugan Selkirk from Community Futures BC to understand how small businesses can get the support they need to become inclusive employers.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

  • Hear directly from service providers that offer help with inclusive hiring
  • Understand the types of support available, including the Opportunities Fund and Work BC Assistive Technology Services programs
  • Learn how you can access funding if you are an entrepreneur with disabilities
