HR Inclusive Policy Toolkit

The Canadian Association for Supported Employment HR Inclusive Policy Toolkit

While the business case for hiring Canadians who experience a disability has been repeatedly demonstrated, some employers remain unsure how to best integrate this highly skilled group of individuals into their labour force.
The CASE toolkit has been designed in collaboration with the supported employment service provider community to assist small- and medium-sized Employers (SMEs) on becoming familiar with the framework of inclusion policies and procedures. Before seeking the assistance of one of our service provider members, we encourage you to review the toolkit. It will put you on the path toward a successful experience in integrating a person with a disability into your workplace.
