October is Disability Employment Awareness Month across Canada
October 1st marks the start of Disability Employment Awareness (DEAM) month across Canada and in Alberta. DEAM celebrates, educates, raises awareness and promotes employment inclusion within the job market for people with disabilities. Persons with disabilities face barriers to employment and each year DEAM provides an opportunity for employers, people with disabilities, service providers and Canadians to come together to act in removing barriers and creating a more inclusive economy.
Throughout the month of October, DEAM events, panel discussion, and activities occur across Canada and Alberta. The DEAM Alberta provincial committee is proud to offer a variety of events, activities, and panel discussions throughout the month of October across the province – including in person and in a virtual setting.
