The toolkit offers a variety of informative tools. Learn about the skills people with disabilities bring to the workplace and use our ‘how-to’ resources, that provide practical tips and strategies on successful recruitment, hiring, inclusion and retention of people with disabilities.
The Restigouche CBDC developed the www.HireForTalent.ca website as part of a project funded by the Government of Canada's Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities.

HIRE for TALENT- Building an Inclusive Canadian Workforce is a national project that will deliver a Canada-wide awareness campaign aimed at increasing the confidence of employers when hiring people with disabilities. The awareness campaign also aims to increase employer awareness about how people with disabilities are a talented part of the workforce, and will provide resources to help employers tap into this talent pool during their search for skilled workers.
