Registration is now open!

You are invited to the DWC2020 Virtual Conference that will be held over four days, November 25 & 26 and December 1 & 2, from 12:30-3:30 EDT.

The theme for this year’s conference is the “Strategy in Action—Pathways and Impacts”, with subthemes for each day as follows:

  • Wednesday November 25, 2020 – The Big Picture--Challenges and Opportunities
  • Thursday November 26, 2020 – Progress in the Workplace
  • Tuesday December 1, 2020 – Strengthening Supports for Workers

As we all know, 2020 has been a very tough year, creating new challenges for the employment of persons with disabilities.  The DWC conference is focused on how to meet those challenges and continue to make progress on implementation of the Pan-Canadian Strategy for Disability and Work. 

The preliminary agenda, as well as information on conference accessibility, will be available soon. Visit our DWC2020 Virtual Conference webpage for more information.
