“The Government of Alberta is proud to acknowledge October as Disability Employment Awareness Month across the province.

“People with disabilities are an essential part of Alberta’s workforce, making valuable contributions to our economy each day.

“Alberta’s government believes every Albertan deserves to have meaningful employment, earn a living and be able to contribute to their community.

“This is why we are creating more jobs for people with disabilities by increasing partnerships, offering grants through the Alberta Jobs Now program and working with our community partners to strengthen programs and services.

“Disability Employment Awareness Month is a great opportunity to discuss what actions we can take to keep building toward a more inclusive province.

“This October, please join me in recognizing DEAM and celebrating inclusion in the workforce.”
