Launch of The Inclusive Workplace, a new online hub offering free resources for inclusive hiring

Inclusion Canada and the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorder Association (CASDA) have launched “The Inclusive Workplace,” a free, bilingual online resource to support job seekers and employees who are on the autism spectrum or have an intellectual disability, businesses, and employment agencies.

The Inclusive Workplace offers more than 100 free community-developed multimedia resources, including eLearning courses, guides, and other timely information. They cover a broad spectrum of practical topics, from understanding the benefits of diversity and inclusion in the workplace to preparing for a video conference job interview.

Supported by the Government of Canada, the site was conceived to help Canadian businesses meet their workforce needs during COVID-19 and beyond by tapping into the benefits of an inclusive workplace. Currently, more than 500,000 working age adults in Canada who are on the autism spectrum or with an intellectual disability are unemployed or underemployed.
