    In The Workplace

    People with developmental disabilities represent an untapped pool of resources - productive individuals who make a real contribution to the workplace. They are willing to learn, have a positive attitude, thrive on routine and are stable and reliable employees who exhibit significantly lower than average turnover rates.

  • Why Hire a Person With a Disability

    Why Hire a Person With a Disability

    Hiring persons with disabilities makes good business sense. By developing a strategy to hire persons with disabilities, not only will you be tapping into an under-utilized group of qualified employees, you'll also be tapping into an often overlooked consumer market. It is estimated that in Canada, persons with disabilities represent $25 billion in consumer spending.

  • Quality of Life

    Quality of Life

    The need to feel like a fully contributing member of society is a basic need for all. Through employment and volunteering we connect to our communities and increase our quality of life. Individuals with disabilities experience this same need but are more frequently denied the opportunity. Selections seeks to remedy this by empowering individuals to contribute in meaningful ways.

  • We Believe

    We Believe

    We believe that each person has intrinsic worth and can contribute in a meaningful way. We also believe in advocacy on behalf of those with developmental disabilities and promoting community integration through meaningful interaction.
