Workforce Development for Persons with Disabilities (WFD-PD)
Eligibility and Criteria
The WFD-PD program provides a level of funding appropriate to the needs of the individual identified in each application. Funds are limited and not all applications are necessarily supported. The level of support is determined by the program objectives, eligibility and criteria.
WFD-PD provides assistance to individuals, community-based organizations and employers to help minimize the impact of disability on education and employment.
Eligible Support Costs
Individual Supports for Persons with a Disability are intended to address exceptional disability-related costs, and must be specific to education or employment settings. Disability supports do not include equipment, services or support required by the participant's peers (i.e. co-workers, other students, business competitors).
N.B. The WFD-PD program is administered under a Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission exemption order (EX09-08).
