Dave Stark, Langley-Sunrise Rotary Club
ROTARY AT WORK BC - "to facilitate employment for people with disabilities."
"Meaningful Work" means: "Real Job" with "Real Pay"
By the year 2020, 20% of Canada's population will be, or will have, some form of disability.
There are numerous benefits to hiring someone with a disability, from excellent work performance, much less absenteeism, increase value of company on the stock market, etc. - all results and benefits that are now being tracked and recognized. Dave introduced Emily Heatley of Delta Community Living - our local representative in the job market for people with disabilities, who spoke to the process of hiring someone. If anyone is interested in contacting Emily about employing clients then please email Mike Reddington (mikered@shaw.ca) for Emily's contact information.
