Living with Disability in Canada: An Economic Portrait

by Gail Fawrett, 1996, published by HRDC, Ottawa

From the introduction: "This book examines the labour-force challenges of working-age adults with disabilities, as well as the hidden potential for their paid employment. It also provides an overview of the various income sources of all adults with disabilities and looks at poverty within that population. The unique impact of the domestic labour challenge on the economic opportunities and security of women with disabilities is the focus of the final chapter."
