About

Mission

Content

DEPPI (the Disability, Employment, and Public Policies Initiative) is a multidisciplinary project aiming to improve the understanding of the preparation, integration, access, participation, and job retention of people with disabilities. The objective of DEPPI is to recommend public policies that boost the employability of people with disabilities in a changing labour market.

The work of DEPPI is based on evidence from field experiments, administrative records, and detailed interviews with employers and people living with physical disabilities.

Under the second phase of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) joint Healthy and Productive Work initiative, DEPPI was awarded a five-year grant of $1,593,315 ($514,260 from the CIHR, $629,634 from the SSHRC, and $449,421 from the project partners). This phase will allow the project to extend the work already done while developing an increased understanding of labour market stakeholders' perceptions of productivity and integration costs related to the employment of people with disabilities. The project will also investigate the challenges associated with the transition from employment to retirement and aim to understand the different programs currently available.

RTF file
Activities

One of DEPPI main goal is to actively mobilize research knowledge from researchers and non-academic partners to determine the most relevant policy recommendations given the evidence gathered. Regular dissemination of knowledge with our Partners will provide persons with disabilities, firms, and local organizations direct access to the knowledge generated by the Partnership.

The partnership's research agenda is guided by the interests of the partners, all of whom have agreed to play a key role in the governance of the organization.

Videos

As part of its dissemination strategy, the DEPPI will produce a series of video: (1) progress reports on the activities of the initiative, (2) videos explaining research and results and (3) videos explaining public policy recommendations.

As a part of its strategy to disseminate research activities and results, DEPPI will produce a series of progress reports about the initiative activities.

On 2 October 2019, in the Groupe TAQ’s premises, the DEPPI’s researchers and partners are going to to discuss the progress made in the first year of the partnership and to plan upcoming activities for the second year.

On 21 September 2018, researchers and partners of the Disability, Employment, and Public Policy Initiative gathered to celebrate the funding announcement of the second project phase.

As a part of its strategy to disseminate research activities and results, DEPPI will produce a series of progress reports about the initiative activities.

DEPPI relies on the involvement of its different partners. They contribute to project development and participate actively in financing the initiative. The partnership’s research agenda is driven by the interests of its partners who all agreed to play a key role in the organization’s governance.

The DEPPI would like to conduct interviews of about 90 minutes with representatives of the human resources of large organizations in Quebec.These interviews will focus on the perceptions and challenges associated with integrating people with disabilities.To join the DEPPI team and participate in the study, contact manuel.paradis.1@ulaval.ca.

Conference entitled "Difficulties of employability of people with disabilities: a field survey." Presented on December 5, 2017 during Université Laval's Social Science Research Week.

DEPPI’s logo illustrates the partnership’s main objective: to produce public policy solutions that promote the employability of people with disabilities in an evolving labour market.The steep, pale-coloured slopes in the logo represent the adversities that people living with disabilities experience. The work of DEPPI aims to make these slopes less sheer; this is represented by the darker colours. The logo’s main colours call back to the red and gold of Université Laval, the project’s host institution. The grey evokes the complexity of the various issues addressed by the initiative’s researchers and partners.
