Today’s rapidly changing labour market requires all workers to be flexible — to adopt new roles within their chosen career and to be ready to change careers. The ability to adapt requires that an individual sees the need and has the tools required to self-manage their career in the context of labour market volatility. While challenging for any worker, workers with disabilities are already facing challenges that include under-employment, barriers to training, discrimination in the workplace, and lack of workplace accommodation.
The Supporting Mid-Career Workers with Disabilities through Community-building, Education, and Career-Progression Resources project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Future Skills Centre. It addresses career adaptability by targeting the adaptive response skills development needs of mid-career workers (MCW) with disabilities.
