Are you looking for work?
If you’re looking for work, you can get help at your local employment agency. There are services in most communities to help people looking for jobs. You can also go online to Employment Ontario’s find employment and training services page to do a search.
The March of Dimes (employment services for clients) provides help for people with disabilities who are looking for jobs, employees with disabilities, and union representatives looking for information about making workplaces more accessible and inclusive.
Do you belong to a union?
If you’re having a problem at work or if you’re fired, talk to your union first. If you feel your union is not assisting you properly, see the Steps to Justice page, "What can I do if my union won't help me?"
