A Closer Look

Canada – Close to half of working-age people with disabilities are employed

Of the 2,338,200 working-age people with disabilities in Canada, 1,057,100 were employed (45.2%), 125,700 were unemployed (5.4%) and 1,155,500 were not in the labour force (49.4%).

Employment rates differed depending on the type of disability. People with developmental, cognitive and mental health-related disabilities face greater employment challenges than people with sensory or physical disabilities.
