OBIAA – New EnAbling Change Project Announcement

OBIAA is delighted to announce that it has received funding from the Government of Ontario’s EnAbling Change Program to work with BIAs and their business members to identify and remove barriers to employment for persons with disabilities in communities across the province. OBIAA will launch a provincial education and inclusion initiative that will:

  1. Engage BIAs and their business members in learning more about the business benefits of hiring persons with disabilities and how to do so successfully.
  2. Work with individual BIAs to identify ways that their business members can remove employment barriers.
  3. Offer accessible employment related resources, tips, case studies, and more on OBIAA’s website.
  4. Support BIAs to understand and comply with the Employment Standard of the AODA.
