Summary

A Profile of the Labour Market Experiences of Adults with Disabilities among Canadians aged 15 years and older, 2012 Acknowledgments It is important to acknowledge the contributions of the following people to the profile of the labour market experiences of adults with disabilities. [...] In Section  2, findings related to the high percentage of people with disabilities out of the labour force are provided, and the relationship with unemployment is discussed. [...] An estimate of the people with disabilities with the potential to work Of the 1,155,5003 people with disabilities aged 15 to 64 who were not in the labour force, 175,200 (15.2%) stated they would look for work in the next year. [...] Will look for work in next 12 months The demographic characteristics of future job-seekers (people with disabilities who were not in the labour force, but who intended to seek employment in the next 12 months) were generally similar to those of the unemployed population. [...] Population with the potential to work In general, potential workers with disabilities were evenly distributed across the working-age spectrum, with close to 20.0% in each of the age groups except for the 55 to 64 years age group.
