Petitioning Government of Alberta Premier of Alberta Rachel Notley and 1 other

Support Employment Inclusion for People with Disabilities!


0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500.

Individuals with disabilities make up 16.5% of the Canadian population and represent the fastest growing minority group.  People with disabilities have valuable contributions to make to the Alberta workforce. Job seekers with disabilities experience disproportionate unemployment and poverty rates.  October is Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) - a time to collectively advocate for greater employment inclusion rates for people with disabilities.  DEAM is also a time to celebrate employers who champion workplace diversity and the inclusion of employees with disabilities. 

Several other Provincial Governments, including Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, have issued formal Provincial Proclamations of October as Disability Employment Awareness Month.  We're hoping with your help that 2017 is the year the Government of Alberta will issue an official Proclamation of Disability Employment Awareness Month. 

Sign our petition today and follow along with the hashtag #ProclaimDEAM!

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Government of Alberta
    Premier of Alberta Rachel Notley
  • Minister of Community and Social Services, Government of Alberta
    Minister Irfan Sabir
