October is DEAM: Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM)—the 11th annual DEAM in our province. Every year brings greater awareness of the importance of an inclusive workforce as well as greater engagement of individuals who experience disability.

“A healthy, sustainable economy promotes employment inclusion of people of all abilities,” says Ian Wilkinson, SaskAbilities Executive Director. “DEAM is an opportunity to celebrate the valuable contributions that people experiencing disability make to our province’s social and economic well‐being.”

Over the past decade, SaskAbilities Partners in Employment offices have organized a variety of DEAM events around the province. While 2021 will look different, we continue to find innovative new ways to connect job seekers and employers. For job seekers, Partners in Employment offers a chance to build confidence and skills through training, mentorship and workplace support. For employers, we provide a range of services to match qualified candidates to specific job vacancies.

Partners in Employment works year‐round to open doors to employment for people of all abilities. DEAM is an opportunity to promote the need for employment inclusion—it is also a chance to raise awareness of the many lasting benefits.
