New Program | Employment Empowered Program

We are excited to announce the official launch of the webpage for our brand-new Empowered Employment Program! In Canada’s 2017 survey on disability, it was found that approximately only 33% of autistic adults were employed compared to the 79% employment rate among those without disabilities. Our employment sector is not currently representative of the diverse society we live in; though this is only one of many small steps, we hope that our newest program can help in building a more inclusive way forward. As written by Ludmila N. Praslova PhD and autistic self-advocate, “Autism Doesn’t Hold People Back at Work. Discrimination Does.”
