December 3rd is declared by the United Nations as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This day is meant to remind us of our responsibility as a society to promote the rights and well being of persons living with disabilities. In honour of this day, staff of our Truro Campus and Nova Scotia Works Centre donated their Casual Day funds to the Autism NS Truro Chapter to support their vision of an accessible and equitable community. Donations received go directly to programs Autism NS provides to members of our community. The staff of our Elmsdale Nova Scotia Works Centre were in the foyer of the Lloyd E.

We encourage businesses to explore this untapped workforce, and encourage consumers to become socially responsible shoppers by supporting corporations who invest in advancing and enhancing the lives of people living with disabilities. ...
