About Us
WEareABLE is new initiative in Windsor-Essex aimed to educate local business owners and hiring managers about the numerous benefits of hiring individuals with disabilities. By eliminating the barriers and stereotypes, we can create a positive pathway towards these individuals gaining competitive employment within our community.

We are offering FREE 40-minute talks to educate businesses and managers on hiring individuals with disabilities and becoming an inclusive employer.

We are not selling anything or have any expectations from you, this is simply an educational information session funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and in association with Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario.
