This project is examining the historical context, current status, challenges, trends, and emerging practices related to career mobility for persons with disabilities. The project involves a literature review as well as focus groups with persons with disabilities and interviews with other stakeholders, such as employment service providers, career practitioners, and employers. While the research is focusing specifically on the Canadian context, it is also highlighting international comparisons, where appropriate. It is also applying a Gender-based Analysis Plus (or intersectional) lens to the analysis. The objective of this research project is to fill a knowledge gap on the experiences of persons with disabilities with respect to career mobility in support of advancing the Employment Strategy and the objectives of the federal government’s new Disability Inclusion Action Plan.
