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. Our DEAM 2018 events wouldn’t have been possible without our fantastic community partners. We’d like to thank the following DEAM 2018 partners for their commitment to inclusive workplaces: Alberta Community and Social Services, Pan Disability Connection, The City of Calgary, Mount Royal University, Bow Valley College, CPHR Alberta, and Prairie Dog Brewing.
Provincial DEAM Proclamation
Last year we called on the Government of Alberta to issue a formal Provincial Proclamation of Disability Employment Awareness Month. In partnership with the Government of Alberta, inclusive employment becomes a priority. We’re proud to announce to kick off DEAM 2018, the Government of Alberta issued a formal Provincial Proclamation of October as Disability Employment Awareness Month.
