Harnessing Talent

Harnessing Talent: Alliance for Recruiting and Retaining Canadians with Disabilities is a project funded by Employment and Social Development Canada. The goal of the alliance is to help employers keep employees with disabilities and chronic health conditions and better use the talented pool of people with disabilities who are seeking employment.

This project will engage employers via human resource professionals, labour representatives and government with the goal of helping employers prepare the workplace for the integration of people with disabilities and chronic health challenges and to support current employees with disabilities. We will provide practical tools, and educational resources, as well as programs and services to help employers apply evidence-informed best practices in disability management. Activities will focus on provinces and territories represented by participating Chartered Professionals in Human Resources associations with membership in British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. We expect it to become a national program in the future.
