BC Employment Mapping Tool
The two-year project involved developing and evaluating The BC Employment Mapping Tool in terms of its role in supporting individuals with developmental disabilities (self-advocates) as well as their families, employers and service providers to learn and share examples of innovation and best practices in the area of employment. Through the course of the project, approximately 120 stories of paid, positive, and inclusive employment were added to the map by a variety of users across British Columbia.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006) says that people with disabilities have the right to work and governments need to support and promote people with disabilities’ right to work.
