DEEP 2013 Outcomes

DEEP, an international in-depth think tank, was launched in 2012 with the objective to engage in substantive in-depth discussion about implementation strategies for digital inclusion of persons with disabilities among decision makers promoting the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in their respective countries, and to identify levers and innovative approaches that go beyond current strategies.

DEEP 2013: Designing Enabling Economies and Policies is a follow-up to the 2012 international in-depth think-tank. Together with participants, we want to continue the momentum seen this past year to substantively address the persistent and urgent challenges faced by persons with disabilities in our digital economy.

This second annual by-invitation think tank took place from July 12–14, 2013 at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada.

Three HRSDC reports were presented at DEEP 2013:

  • Inclusive Design Industry in Canada
  • Exploring Job Mismatch and Labour Market Outcomes for People with Disabilities
  • Hiring Persons with Disabilities
