EmploymentWorks Canada Program
Using national population survey data, researchers from The School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary explored the education, daily needs and labour force participation of adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They looked at data from the 2012 Canadian Survey on Disability that surveyed 45,500 Canadians with disabilities and found valuable information about the challenges people with disabilities encounter getting into and remaining in the workforce. Their research is also providing insights that inform policy development.
Worktopia was interested to understand how participants in the EmploymentWorks Canada (EWC) program compared in relation to the findings derived from the Canadian Survey on Disability.
