  • A physical condition, a mental condition or a health problem that restricts the performance of one or more of a person's significant life activities for an extended period.

The Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities

The programs listed above are funded by the Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities (LMAPD). Yukon Education and Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) signed the LMAPD on February 19, 2014.

The goal of the LMAPD is to improve the employment outcomes of persons with disabilities. To attain this goal, the following objectives will be pursued:

  • Enhancing the employability of persons with disabilities;
  • Increasing the employment opportunities available to persons with disabilities by better addressing employer needs; and
  • Demonstrating the best possible results for Canadians on these investments as evidenced by increased labour market participation of persons with disabilities.
