Membership options

Canadian Business SenseAbility is Canada’s only national, bilingual business network dedicated to helping private and public sector organizations become more accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities. We provide the context around why it is important to your business, what you need to know about inclusive workplaces and how to develop and implement a plan that works best for you.

SenseAbility provides its members with practical support by offering training resources, tools, advisory services, networking opportunities, and important brand and social media visibility to help them successfully employ people with disabilities and attract them as customers.

Understanding the importance to your organization of becoming accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities is the easy part. Knowing what needs to change and how to do it is more challenging. We can help get you there.

We offer five levels of membership designed to suit your needs. Membership fees are charged annually because SenseAbility understands that as your plans evolve, your requirements and membership level may change. Scroll down the page or select one of the following links to move directly to a specific membership level.
