The Rotary Employment Partnership is a partnership of Alberta Rotary Clubs, Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta. The Partnership creates meaningful employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities by working with Rotarians to reach out and utilize the capacity of the business community to hire and retain employees. Through the Partnership, Rotarians advocate for the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in the workforce. Rotarians and Rotary Clubs make excellent partners given their long-term commitment to improving community life.



Up to eighty percent of Albertans with disabilities are unemployed or underemployed, but many want nothing more than the opportunity to demonstrate their potential in the workplace.

Alberta has many examples of successful employment for people with developmental disabilities. These people work in offices, restaurants, stores, and factories.

Many employers know hiring people with developmental disabilities is good for their businesses and the communities they serve.



The Partnership links employers to potential employees with developmental disabilities. Rotary helps develop relationships with businesses, while Inclusion Alberta provides the resources, expertise and on-the-job supports to ensure successful outcomes.

Through the Partnership, employers and employees learn how to sustain and facilitate the successful inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in the workforce.
