About the employABILITY EXPO

The employAbility Expo is an integral part of the Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) in Manitoba. The main goal of the Expo is to feature and applaud organizations who hire workers with a disability, and encourage other Manitoba businesses to have an inclusive workforce.

The Expo is for Employers, Agencies, and Persons with Disabilities to explore the benefits of having an inclusive workforce and how agencies can assist employers in reaching this untapped market.

This annual event includes a breakfast with keynote speaker, a discussion panel, and exhibits from some of the key organizations and agencies offering services to facilitate the development of an inclusive workforce.

There are many different ways for your company or your agency to participate and we welcome your engagement as a Sponsor, Exhibitor, Panel attendee or at our Breakfast and Keynote address.
