“British Columbians with disabilities will also be able to access assistive technology through the Technology@Work program to help reach their employment goals. The Neil Squire Society will receive $3 million annually over the next three years to deliver the new Technology@Work assistive technology program to support employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

Technology@Work will provide assistive technologies, such as mobility supports, assistive devices such as alternative keyboards and voice input equipment, hearing devices and workplace modifications. The new program will complement existing employment programs, such as the Employment Program of BC. Technology@Work will also provide employers and organizations with information and connect them with assistive technology to help them better support their employees.” –gov.bc.ca
