reachAbility Association and The Truro and District Chamber of Commerce is extremely enthusiastic to be presenting:

Opening Doors for Everyone (ODE)

Under the direction of The Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, reachAbility is introducing you to this ground-breaking program for your small-medium business!

ODE will cover the following topics, ensuring attendees leave with a comprehensive tool kit of resources available while providing straight forward answers to your inclusion questions and addressing your business needs.

  • Facts, Flags, and Forward Thinking
  • Disability Awareness in Practice
  • Accessing available grants and partners
  • Next Steps!

Beyond the free training component, ODE is also dedicated to creating a sustainable resource toolkit that will support participating businesses in learning about and accessing; available grants, local community agencies with whom they can partner, opportunities to be part of the disability community across Nova Scotia and most importantly encourage hiring of persons with disabilities, which, studies show, will improve overall customer satisfaction and loyalty as well as customer base.

reachAbility is a Halifax based, grassroots, non-profit organization; specializing in equalizing the playing field for persons facing barriers. Through self-management and employment services, reachAbility provides individuals from diverse backgrounds the opportunities needed to reach their full potential. In addition to the many programs and services offered throughout the community, reachAbility has been a leader, across Canada, for almost 20 years in providing businesses a variety of training opportunities to diversify their workplace and increase disability and diversity education.
