There are 6. 2 million Canadians with a disability and they have a lot to offer to Canada’s workforce. They have skills, passion and talents to share.
MentorAbility is a national supported employment initiative that provides an opportunity for education and awareness to be shared between employers and people experiencing a disability in communities across Canada.
This initiative offers a unique mentoring experience in which job seekers with disabilities (Protégés) are matched with individual mentors (employers or business leaders) – to explore different career pathways and opportunities in their desired field of interest.
MentorAbility is designed to assist employers to become more successful in employing people with disabilities by using mentoring relationships along with creative human resources recruitment and outreach strategies. By facilitating and celebrating successful mentoring experiences happening across Canada, MentorAbility is part of a national effort to promote the employment and full citizenship of Canadians experiencing disability.
