Restigouche CBDC begins Hire for Talent campaign
The Restigouche Community Business Development Corporation of Campbellton, NB has begun a national awareness campaign intended to encourage the hiring of persons with disabilities. The campaign, called "Hire for Talent," is aimed at employers. It includes a website at <https://www.hirefortalent.ca> that hosts a collection of information for employers highlighting the "corporate and business advantages of hiring people with disabilities." The site also directs visitors to various organizations offering services and programs specializing in the recruitment, hiring, training and retention of people with disabilities. The site will be supported with a number of other promotional activities.
"This project is very important for Canada's labour market considering that Canadian employers are facing increasing employee recruitment challenges," said Reno Michel Haché, developer of the "Hire for Talent" employer toolkit. "'Hire for Talent' finds its roots in showcasing the skills and competencies that persons with disabilities can bring to the workforce."
