Workers with Disabilities

The Canadian Labour Congress works to promote the self-organization and full participation of people with disabilties in the union movement and their communities.

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.

The information on this site will give you some idea of the work the Canadian Labour Congress does to ensure full equality and empowerment of people with disabilities in our society.
