Disability Employment Awareness Month 2016 Highlights

The CEFN is proud to celebrate Disability Employment Awareness Month every October.  It is important to us to recognize and celebrate the outstanding inclusive employers and diverse employees that we work with.  DEAM 2016 featured a wide range of exciting events that would not have been possible without the support of our partners.  We would like to applaud Alberta Human Services, Mount Royal University, Bow Valley College, The City of Calgary, Calgary Economic Development, Picture This Film Festival, and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce for their dedication to inclusive employment.
