Our resource room for employers


Edmonton Chamber of Commerce/World Trade Centre Edmonton
Martin Salloum, President & CEO

” We introduced our workforce diversity project over two years ago.  We wanted to ensure that ALL of our available resources were being deployed in our economy, and that meant including people with disabilities.  So the Edmonton Employer Consortium was developed to bring business, government and community groups together.  We are committed to position people with disabilities in the workplace.  We help employers find good employees! And when everybody participates, everybody benefits.  This is what being a community is all about.”
