Employment Access for Persons with Disabilities (1996)

Women's Education des femmes, Summer 1996 - Vol. 12, No. 2

Most recent figures from Statistics Canada reveal 52.2% of the Country's working-age disabled remains unemployed.''1 Although this figure is recent, the inequity it implies is not. Historically, persons with disabilities have been discriminated against through systemic practices and policies in employment. Employment Equity legislation has created some awareness of this inequity but an awareness that inequities exist is not sufficient to implement change.
