Disability and Work in Canada 2020 will be held on December 1 and 2, 2020. The conference will be held virtually this year. Details about the conference will be posted on this page 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 was revised following feedback from consultation across Canada that took place in the spring of 2019. The National Conference in December 2019 reviewed the revised pan-Canadian strategy to improve the level of employment of persons with disabilities and identify the most important early steps in implementation.
