Disability and Work in Canada 2019 will be held at the Delta Ottawa City Centre on December 4 and 5, 2019. The conference will review a revised national strategy to improve the level of employment of persons with disabilities in Canada and identify the most important early steps in implementation. Details on the conference will be posted on this site when they become available.

Since the National Conference in 2017, efforts have been underway to develop a vision and strategy for the future, focused on key initiatives to increase the employment of persons with a disability. A draft strategy was distributed in the Fall of 2018 and discussed at the National Conference in December 2018. The strategy is currently being revised following feedback from consultation across Canada that took place in the spring of 2019. A revised strategy will be available in advance of the conference on December 4 and 5, 2019.
