BC – Accessibility & Inclusion Consultation Job Postings

As part of Accessibility 2024 initiative to make BC the most progressive place in Canada for persons with disabilities, the government of BC has appointed a Presidents Group of CEO’s and key influencers to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities in BC. The Presidents Group has undertaken a Pathfinding Project to actively encourage employers in a number of different sectors to hire more people with disabilities, with a commitment to share their collective learnings on the recruitment, hiring and retention of employees with disabilities with other employers.

The Presidents Group is hiring two Accessibility & Inclusion Consultants to support the Presidents Group’s Pathfinding Project. These consultants will work with the disability and business communities to research, pilot and develop a toolkit of resources, approaches and processes that will support increased employment success rates for people with disabilities.

The two positions, which are 24-month contracts, are posted on Vancity’s website at:
