Workplace Safety (For People with Disabilities)
The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) offers a wide range of resources to provide people with disabilities with vital information about their rights and responsibilities in the workplace, as well as to help them recognize and avoid hazards at work. All of these are intended to produce safer, better-informed and more knowledgeable disabled workers (whether seeking employment or currently working) who have the confidence and knowledge they need to work safely.
Resources include:

  • Walk-in personalized customer service in several languages. WSIB Publications in alternative formats.
  • Special needs equipment, Computer with access software (Zoomtext), CCTV (Closed Circuit), Pocket Talker, Braille, Large print and CD/MP3/Daisy Fact sheets. Access to the WSIB Website and other health and safety sites.

SavAbility is a health and safety awareness training program for disabled people as they enter the workforce, and for employers to hire people with disabilities. It was developed jointly by the WSIB, Linkup Employment Services, and representatives from various organizations within the disabled community.

Volunteer Tax Preparation Clinics
Find out if you are eligible to attend a clinic and get help with your tax return.
If you are unable to complete your income tax and benefit return by yourself and are unable to pay for assistance, our Community Volunteer Income Tax Program may be for you.
CRA offers training to volunteers who can help you complete your income tax and benefit return if your income is low and your tax situation is simple.
Volunteers do not complete income tax and benefit returns for deceased persons, bankrupt individuals, or individuals who have capital gains or losses, employment expenses, or business or rental income and expenses.
Volunteer tax preparation clinics are offered between February and April of each year in various locations across Canada. For more information about this free service, call us at 1-800-959-8281.
