Connecting employers to a valuable workforce in Ontario.
Ontario's Rotary at Work is a partnership between local Ontario Rotary Clubs and Community Living Ontario.
The goal of Ontario's Rotary at Work is to help Ontarians who have a disability find meaningful work.
Hiring people who have a disability is much more than ‘doing the right thing’. It’s good for business.
