Statistics Canada - Business and Community Newsletter

Monday, January 11, 2016

Meanwhile, over the years we have seen a growing presence and participation of people with disabilities in every sphere of activity: work, leisure, sports, arts, academics, science and politics. Today in Canada, about half of all working-age people with disabilities are employed and over three quarters of them are full-time workers.
