I thought you could use this information from: The President’s Group of Canada’s Accessible Employers https://accessibleemployers.ca/members/presidentsgroup/activity/1008/
In Canada alone, people with disabilities represent a large market with spending power of over $55 billion that is consistently underserved.
By 2030, real consumer spending by Canadians with physical disabilities alone is projected to advance at nearly three times the pace of overall consumer spending.
Having people on staff with lived experience of disability can improve how your company designs customer experiencesthat meet the needs of this significant demographic.
Highlighting that you are an inclusive employer can also help your brand appeal to ethical shoppers and people whose lives are touched by disabilities. In fact, market research shows that 92% of consumers prefer to support companies that hire people with disabilities….
67% of job seekers consider diversity and inclusion when evaluating a job opportunity, so being an accessible employer can help your business attract top talent.
A focus on employment equity also opens doors to new opportunities that your organization may not have previously been eligible for, such as federal and provincial procurement contracts.
Federal contractors are required to report on employment equity statistics and in B.C., bids are evaluated in part based on their potential for social impact.
