Workers with disabilities

The Canadian Labour Congress works for the equality of workers with disabilities both in their workplaces and in society. We lobby federal, provincial and territorial governments for genuine labour market strategies and for improved income and support services for disabled persons. We also provide educational resources and conduct public awareness campaigns on disability rights.
