Integrating People With Disabilities Into The Workplace

In keeping with our commitment to diversity and our sponsorship of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games, Deloitte held a series of Dialogue on diversity roundtables to discuss the role the business community can play in addressing the issues facing people with disabilities.

The roundtables began March 3, 2010, in Halifax and traveled to six other cities during the Paralympic Games, including Toronto, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Montreal, Edmonton, and concluded in Vancouver on March 19. Each session included representatives from the business community, special interest groups, government agencies, current and former Paralympic athletes, and Deloitte partners and colleagues.

This white paper is the result of these discussions, and it provides insights into key recommendations of those involved.

“I hope that the ideas that come out of this white paper will add another voice to the discussion and reinforce the importance of celebrating all aspects of diversity in Canadian business,” says Jane Allen, partner and Chief Diversity Officer.

About Deloitte:

Serving our clients

“Deloitte” is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to selected clients. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, a Swiss Verein (“DTT”). Each member firm provides services in a particular geographic area and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates. DTT helps coordinate the activities of the member firms but does not itself provide services to clients. DTT and the member firms are separate and distinct legal entities, which cannot obligate the other entities. DTT and each DTT member firm are only liable for their own acts or omissions, and not those of each other. Each DTT Member Firm is structured differently in accordance with national laws, regulations, customary practice and other factors, and may secure the provision of professional services in their territories through subsidiaries, affiliates and/or other entities.
