Welcome to SenseAbility
Close to 1 in 5 Canadians have a disability. They are customers, employees, suppliers and investors and make up a population segment much too large for businesses to ignore.
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. Learn how we can help your organization build an inclusive and innovative workplace. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Determine your organization’s current state of accessibility and inclusion with SenseAbility’s Disability Inclusion IndexTM. For additional details, see our page Disability inclusion index.
