Employment First

Employment-First-Logo

Employment enables adults to lead independent and productive lives while contributing to their community.

Employment First is a national movement centered on the premise that all citizens, including individuals with significant disabilities, are capable of full participation in integrated employment and community life, resulting in increased community-based, integrated employment opportunities for individuals with significant disabilities.

The information contained in the Employment First section (3 tabs: Policy-Information-Updates) provides clients, families, service providers and employers with various resources to promote employment and job support for individuals with disabilities.
