Citizens With Disabilities - Ontario (CWDO) actively promotes the rights, freedoms and responsibilities of persons with disabilities through community development, social action, and member support and referral.  Our primary activity is public education and awareness about the social and physical barriers that prevent the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in Ontario.
 Webinar on Proposed Employment Standards
Tuesday, April 21, starting at 7:30 p.m. E.D.T. (Toronto time)

Join John Rae, community activist, for an informative (and free!) Webinar on the proposed new accessible Employment Standards.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act has authorized the development of a number of standards to make Ontario accessible by the year 2025.

The Accessibility Standards for Customer Service have already been set in regulation. The public sector (i.e., provincial government) and the broader public sector (such as hospitals and schools) will need to be in compliance with the regulation by January 1, 2010.

Now, standards are proposed to ensure employment practices will be accessible.

Come to the Webinar to find out what this means.  Get information to help you decide if you support the standard or not, and how to give your input to the standards development committee.
