Magnet allows job-seekers to privately and securely self-identify as a member of any employment equity group, promoting diversity and supporting bias free recruitment strategies.

 

The Discover Ability Network

https://discoverability.network

Provides tools and best practices for employers to become more inclusive. More importantly, it leverages the Magnet job-matching platform where job seekers can post their resumes and employers can post opportunities and specifically target PWDs. For job seekers, once their resume is in the system, they will get pushed via email job opportunities automatically when they are a good match with a posting based on their skills and experience. For PWDs who self-declare (anonymously) they will not only have access to all job postings on the platform, but further benefit when employers are specifically targeting jobs to this under-tapped labor pool (targeted recruiting)!

 JOIN is one of Ontario’s leading organizations specializing in recruitment of persons with disabilities and disability in the workplace. They work with job seekers with disabilities and assist employers in making their workplaces more accessible. Through our referrals to service providers, we connect job seekers and employers.
