Investing in The Business Case

There are three facts facing every employer in Canada as they look to the future of their workforce and to building market share.
• With the impending labour shortage as baby boomers retire, persons with disabilities provide a valuable talent pool of workers to fill that gap.
• Statistics show employees with disabilities often score higher than their co-workers in job performance and job retention.
• Persons with disabilities represent an estimated $25 billion in spending power in Canada alone. A positive company policy towards persons with disabilities can also open up a greater market for your products and services.

Clint Mahlman, Vice President HR, London Drugs Ltd
