Government of Canada helps people with disabilities in Calgary prepare for labour market



Have you heard about the case of a special child and her mom who were pressured to get off the plane by a Cebu Pacific's purser and cabin crew? Read the story here.

Now, read this news about how the government of Canada helps people with disabilities in Calgary prepare for labor market.

People with disabilities will get help preparing for jobs thanks to the Government of Canada’s support for a local employment program. Mr. Deepak Obhrai, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Member of Parliament for Calgary East, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.

“In today’s environment, it is more important than ever that all Canadians have the skills they need to participate and succeed in the job market,” said Mr. Obhrai. “By supporting this project, our government is helping Canadians with disabilities maximize their potential and independence.”[Source]

Canada may not be perfect, but it sure is a better place for persons with disabilities.
