On the Road to Inclusivity

In late 2017 the Durham Workforce Authority (DWA), worked with the community to carry forward the important work undertaken by Durham Region Employment Network (DREN) in the Community Roadmap to address the employment issues related to persons with disabilities in Durham Region.

The DWA discovered significant gaps in data and information on persons with disabilities. While data can be derived at the national and provincial level, obtaining data for smaller geographies, for example Durham Region or individual municipalities proves to be challenging. Without access to timely, accurate  labour market information and data on persons with disabilities it is difficult to appropriately plan programs, services and interventions to assist in labour market attachment for persons with disabilities.  Better access to labour market information and data will  allow programs and supports to be appropriately resourced, well-integrated and coordinated to minimize the barriers to achieve appropriate long-term attachment to the workforce.
