On June 3, 2019, Charles Bellemare, along with Charles Gaucher, Ann Beaton and Pauline Ranou, presented the DEPPI at the New Brunswick University in Fredericton. Team members based in New Brunswick solicited representatives from different organizations dedicated to the employability of people with disabilities. This meeting allowed researchers to discuss realities on the ground in the north of New Brunswick. It was also an opportunity to discuss particularities of the contexte of english-speaking persons with disabilities.
DEPPI researchers will conduct interviews with people with disabilities in English and French in the fall of 2019 and will meet with human resources specialists to discuss perceptions of the New Brunswick labor market.
