People with disabilities are experiencing difficulties finding and maintaining employment during this pandemic. While these challenges existed prior to the pandemic, jobs are more limited now and this is negatively impacting people with disabilities.

TVO’s Employable Me is a six-part documentary series that explores the growing difficulties experienced by people who have physical disabilities and/or neurological conditions from finding steady employment. Individuals featured are from the Greater Toronto Area and Montreal. You can view this documentary series here (link).

The Globe and Mail has recently looked at this issue faced by people with disabilities. You can read the article here (link).
