Are you a business or not-for-profit organization that employs between 5 to 500 people? Would you like to increase the diversity of your staff and better meet the talent requirements of your organization by employing a person with a disability? Do you have an employee that needs accommodation? If yes, you will want to join us for this free webinar.
Accessibility Ontario has invited the Chamber of Commerce to share information about its new pilot funding program, Abilities Connect. Through the Abilities Connect Fund you may qualify for:
• Up to $20,000 for the employment (co-ops, internships, part-time, fulltime) of students and recent graduates with disabilities; and
• Up to $3,000 for the purchase of assistive devices, training, and assessments for ANY employee(s) with a disability.
In this 45-minute webinar we will review the goals of the funding, detail the eligibility requirements, explain the application process, and discuss what costs are eligible under the funding stream.
