About the Project
The Mid-Career Workers with Disabilities (MCWD) project, operating with grant funding from Canada’s Future Skills Centre (FSC), addresses career adaptability by targeting the adaptive response skills development needs of MCWD. Through fostering and strengthening career adaptability, the project aims to potentiate other work underway to lessen the barriers MCWD and other disability cohorts face in the Canadian labour market.
Our team consists of researchers from 4 post-secondary institutions (Ontario Tech University, Nipissing University, Durham College, and York University) and 4 not-for-profit provincial and national organization (Quebec Association for Equity and Inclusion in Post-Secondary Education [AQEIPS], Council of Canadians with Disabilities [CCD], Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities [MLPD], National Educational Association of Disabled Students [NEADS]). The project is led by Dr. Sue Coffey.
