A provincial initiative of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, along with local organizations including the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, is being launched to promote employment opportunities for those who might not otherwise be considered in a hiring decision.
The program—Discover Ability—aims to connect job seekers with disabilities to inclusive employment opportunities as part a Southwestern Ontario Hub initiative, says Shirley de Silva, President and CEO.
The Discover Ability Network’s job matching platform is a free-to-use, online tool that matches job seekers with employment opportunities based on their skills, experiences, education and professional interests.
While anyone can use the Discover Ability Network to find employment, users who self-identify as a person with a disability will receive exclusive employment opportunities.
Additional details on how employers and employees alike can benefit from this initiative will be forthcoming in the near future.
In the meantime, details on the Network can be found online by clicking HERE.
