Episodic Disabilities Network (EDN) Policy Dialogue

Bonnie Brayton (DAWN-RAFH Canada & EDN) introducing MP Bernard Trottier to deliver the lunchtime keynote speech.

On April 17th, Bonnie Brayton, National Executive Director of DAWN-RAFH Canada, participated in a policy dialogue convened by the Episodic Disabilities Network (EDN) in Ottawa to develop a strategy to help the millions of Canadians living with episodic disabilities to fully and productively participate in the workforce.

Members of the government of Canada joined policy-makers, employers, organized labour, and people living with an episodic disability to identify achievable solutions to the barriers that prevent full workforce participation by people living with episodic disabilities.
