Today is Red T-Shirt Day to show your solidarity with those with disabilities across Canada.
People across the country are asked to wear their favourite red shirt to show their support for the cause.
This is one of many events taking place from May 29 to June 4 as the Canadian Council for Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) celebrates National AccessAbility Week (NAAW).
“(It) is a time to celebrate the contributions of Canadians with disabilities and promote efforts to increase accessibility and inclusion throughout Canada,” said CCRW Job Developer here in Moose Jaw Velvet Tomassini.
Throughout the week, there will be interactive activities taking place on the CCRW website. The CCRW is a non-profit career service for those with disabilities or has barriers to finding employment. The Moose Jaw office is located in the basement of the Salvation Army Thrift Store.
They have an employment councillor who helps clients find work and receive any training that is necessary and a job developer who forges relationships with employers as well as delivers any wage subsidies that may be available.
On Monday, video vignettes were posted on the website CCRW employees about their work experiences.
Meanwhile, Thursday will be the CCRW speaker series at 10 a.m. which will be a panel of National AccessAbility Week employers.
There is also an eLearning module about accessibility in the workplace, with the challenge of scoring 100 points on your first try.
