Manitoba Law Discriminatory

Disability rights advocates have repeatedly stressed that we must move toward acceptance of a social model of disability in explaining and challenging the poor labour market participation rates of people with disabilities.

In the social model, we place primary emphasis on how structural barriers make it difficult for people with disabilities to gain — and keep — employment.
These can range from physical barriers in the workplace that make it impossible for wheelchair users to use the washrooms to a lack of assistive technology that would permit a blind person to effectively use a computer.
