Finding their path to independence

Empower serves as a community resource within the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. While by far, the greatest numbers of citizens served are people with disabilities, the programs and services offered by Empower reach the whole community.

While usage by sector may vary slightly year over year, the chart here reflects the number of times Empower programs and services are accessed throughout the community in a typical year.

70% of businesses are not hiring people with disabilities.

A BMO survey conducted by Pollara found that the majority of small businesses are missing out by not hiring those with disabilities.
