Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW)

This Giving Tuesday CCRW is empowering Canadians with disabilities through employment!

Finding a job you love can seem next to impossible sometimes. Interviews are stressful, job searching can be daunting, and resume writing is a skill unto itself. Now imagine you are a person with a disability - you enter a job interview but can't hear the questions being asked; your low vision makes it tough to search for jobs online; or your learning disability makes resume writing a challenge. You have the skills for the job - but demonstrating those skills is a challenge.

Did you know that more than 1 in 10 working-age Canadians lives with a disability? Did you know that the unemployment rate amongst Canadians with disabilities is more than double that of the population without disabilities?

We know this at the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW), and that's why we've made it our mission to showcase and connect that talent; to provide and support meaningful and equitable employment for people with disabilities. We connect employers with an untapped pool of talent, providing people with disabilities the tools, skills and confidence they need to perform at a level that is equal or superior to their peers.

CCRW makes the most of every penny contributed with innovative programs and services serving Canadians with disabilities from coast to coast. A few examples of CCRW's client spending:
