LiveWorkPlay Named Top Supported Employment Agency by Canadian Association for Supported Employment (CASE) 2021

The Canadian Association for Supported Employment (CASE) Wiltshire Award of Excellence in Supported Employment recognizes outstanding individuals or agencies that have made significant contributions to the promotion of full citizenship and personal capacity for Canadians with disabilities through the facilitation of increased labour market participation and outcomes. This award is named for the original recipient, Sean Wiltshire of Newfoundland and Labrador, a supported employment champion who has received multiple awards in Canada and abroad for his work over the past 30 years. Presented annually at the CASE conference, the winner is chosen by a volunteer awards panel, and is based on five equally weighted criteria:

  • visibility as a best practices role model in supported employment
  • evidence of accomplishments in advancing labour market participation through replicable processes
  • evidence that the local community has benefited from the work of the agency in ways that extend beyond the labour market
  • demonstrated excellence in minimizing barriers to employment
  • promotion of full inclusion and citizenship through increased labour market participation of persons with disabilities.
