Employment is not only a source of income but also a means to identity, independence, participation, health, and social well-being for all individuals. Yet, many individuals living with disabilities worldwide face barriers to meaningful and gainful employment and live under the poverty line [1–3]. Previous research suggests that individuals with disabilities are less likely to find employment than individuals without disabilities, despite similar age and educational attainment . Available estimates from the Canadian Survey on Disability of 2017 indicated that the employment rates (including both full- and part-time employment) for approximately 6 million Canadians aged 15 and over who have one or more disabilities is 59% compared to an 80% employment rate for those without disabilities . Similarly, the Canadian time-use survey indicated that individuals with disabilities spend 60–100 minutes less time in competitive jobs or paid employment while spending more time in household work (18–20 minutes more) per day.
