Development and trial of evaluative frameworks for inclusive employment programs

The Canadian Panel on Labour Market Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities (2012) found that 795,000 persons with disabilities in Canada are unemployed, even though their disabilities do not prevent them from working, and almost half have some form of post-secondary education. The exclusion of this section of the Canadian workforce is not only a key health and social issue, but also an economic and labour market one. Governments and private sector organizations have tried to address this disconnect in labour market engagement through a range of policies and supported employment programs. Yet it is unclear how well these programs are working, and the evidence-base is lacking around the best way to balance and improve their intended outcomes. This research project aims to develop a framework for evaluating and making recommendations for improving inclusive employment programs, specifically for individuals with mental health conditions and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
