Programs are currently in place to assist with funding assistive technology for people who are experiencing a barrier in the workplace due to a disability, an injury, or a chronic medical condition such as back, neck, and/or shoulder pain or carpal tunnel syndrome. Employees and employers are urged to take advantage of them. Approximately 550,000 British Columbians identify as having a disability and over 80% of them use some kind of aid or assistive device on a daily basis.
