Boréal receives $1.5M boost to support people with disabilities in the workplace


Collège Boréal has been awarded more than $1.5M from the Government of Canada to bolster employer awareness and increase supports for people with disabilities in the workplace. Boréal’s new “L’inclusivité fonctionne” initiative was developed in collaboration with NorQuest College — Autism Cantech, STRIDE, and the Ontario Disability Employment Network. Through the three-year project, the college will develop training courses, workshops, and a resource kit on accessibility in the workplace. These will support employers as they diversify their workforces and create more inclusive working environments. Boréal président Daniel Giroux said that “L’inclusivité fonctionne” reiterates the college’s commitment to building a fairer society.
