People with disabilities, inclusive employers to benefit from program extension

Hundreds of people with disabilities will be able to achieve greater independence and find meaningful employment thanks to the extension of the Province of British Columbia’s popular Technology@Work program.

More than 1,140 people have already accessed Technology@Work, where people with disabilities can get the assistive technology they need for employment. Operated by the Neil Squire Society since May 4, 2015, a $2 million investment from the Ministry of Social Development (new window) and a $1 million investment from Advanced Education (new window) will support the one-year extension of the program, until a contract renewal process is completed.
