The purpose of DEAM is to raise awareness of the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities, break down barriers, and foster inclusiveness in the workplace. We honour the Wholesale Club in Bonnyville for doing just that! Look for posts on EmployAbilities’ Facebook throughout the month!
