Informing the Roadmap for Work Disability Policy in Canada

National Policy Round Table

CRWDP held its inaugural national policy round table on November 19, 2015. The roundtable provided background information on the mission, structure and high-level work plan of the Centre; an overview of the array of work disability programs; a summary of past efforts in Canada to coordinate disability programs; and most importantly, an opportunity for dialogue among senior policy officials on barriers to coordination, current efforts at reform and research/information gaps. Following are videos, PowerPoint decks and related materials from the round table.
