A new WorkBC contract will help those with disabilities feel more comfortable in the workplace.
Announced today, the program will streamline support of adaptive technology to help those with disabilities fully participate in the economy.
Thanks to the McNeil Squire Society, the program will deliver access to mobility supports, alternative keyboards, voice inpur equipment, and other forms of helpful technology.
On top of that, the government will supply training for employers on how to use the equipment, and how to make their work environments more accessible and inclusive.
The program will begin next April thanks to a 5 year, 28.8 million dollar contract.
