Everyone deserves to be Accessful.

Accessful is an exciting initiative to dramatically improve summer 2019 employment opportunities for students in Gr 10 to 12 with disabilities. Part of our mandate is to change the way disabilities are seen in our community. Imagine, students with disabilities thriving in rewarding summer jobs. Five key audiences – students; educators; parents; employers; and social agencies – are working together to support individuals with disabilities gain employment.

The Right Start

Accessful students in Peel DSB are preparing to find summer employment. The Right Start introduces you to students and educators who have embraced Accessful. Their stories will reduce stigma and help the labour market in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon to embrace students with accessibility needs. During the summer, we’ll add another video to capture the before, during and after of the Accessful experience. Accessful students are proving not only is positive change possible, it’s already happening!
