Jill posted a couple of cool things to her personal Facebook a little while ago, about a new employment task force that the government is putting together to examine employment for persons with differences. I thought I would post the links to the CBC Radio One Interview and article here today:. Here is the radio interview:
and here is the article:
I will be interested to see the information that the panel produces come the end of December. I hope that at the very least – as was mentioned on the CBC Radio interview with Keenan Weller , executive staff co-leader of Live Work Play an organization that supports people with intellectual differences – the task force will create more awareness of employment issues for people with differences. I will read any information that is made available to the public once the documentation is put together, and comment on it here on the blog. In the meantime, I’d love your thoughts!
