Take part in an online activity to design workplace supports for the future

We would like to invite you to share your experiences as part of a new study by the Institute for Work & Health that is exploring the future of work for young people with disabilities. Your insights will be used to support the employment of young people with disabilities.

What is the study about?

The world of work is changing very quickly. Factors like technology, artificial intelligence and climate change are changing how we work and creating new challenges and opportunities for young people seeking jobs who are living with a disability. Your help is needed to understand how young people with disabilities can be supported in the future of work.

Your opinions matter. Design creative ideas to make the future of work inclusive.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete two online activities, spaced six months apart, where you will be asked to recommend supports for the future for young people with disabilities. You can also choose to complete the activity by telephone. You will receive a $25 Amazon e-gift card for each online activity you complete.

You can access the online activity here. Also, we have included a report on the future of work. We ask that you review this report before completing the activity to help you answer the questions. 

This is an exciting chance for you to be creative and use your experiences to promote innovative solutions.

We encourage you to share this email with others who you think may be interested in participating in the online activity.

If you have questions, please contact the study coordinator, Kay Nasir, at or (416) 927-2027 ext. 2101.
