What is SHIFT?

SHIFT is a joint Government of Canada/Canadian Down Syndrome Society initiative. Our goal is to help employers build inclusive work places. We provide workshops, consulting support and other resources to help employers understand and overcome the challenges and barriers they face when building inclusive work places.

How do you SHIFT?

Understanding is the key to any transformation and SHIFT is about transforming disengaged and fractured work places into inclusive and productive work places. SHIFT helps employers with human centered design that addresses work place culture and employee engagement. We believe that inclusive employers will increase employment for all Canadians, including persons with disabilities, people facing mental and physical health issues, and recent immigrants.
