CACL Policy Position on Employment

Working‐age adults with intellectual disabilities, regardless of perceived level of disability, must have choice and opportunity to earn a living through paid employment in the open labour market. For employment opportunities to be meaningful working‐age adults with intellectual disabilities require appropriate employment‐related supports and job accommodation as needed. Employment rates and compensation must be commensurate with that of people without disabilities.
