Ready, Willing and Able to Work

The work we do provides us with social structure and economic means. It helps us define who we are and our place in the world. But for more than half a million persons on the Autism spectrum or with an Intellectual Disability, “what do you do?” is no easy question to answer. Ready, Willing and Able is an initiative of Inclusion Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorders Alliance (CASDA). The Government of Canada has made a three-year investment in Ready, Willing and Able, to work with employers and community agencies in 20 communities across the country. We are committed to generating a minimum of 1200 employment opportunities for people on the Autism spectrum or with Intellectual Disabilities.

Ready, Willing and Able is designed to build on, and increase employer capacity and demand to hire people on the Autism Spectrum or with an Intellectual Disability. By creating the effective and responsive linkages between employers and employment agencies supporting people with individuals on the Autism Spectrum and Intellectual Disabilities, we will open new doors of opportunity for our fellow Canadians.

Registered Disability Savings Plan

Registered Disability Savings Plan: A registered disability savings plan (RDSP) is a savings plan to help parents and others save for the long-term financial security of a person who is eligible for the disability tax credit. For more information on RDSP’s, please visit the following links:

Free RDSP Calculator for Canadians

The calculator will help Canadian families project the estimated future value of an RDSP, and will help determine how it can enhance the quality of life for a family member with a disability. By answering a few simple questions, the calculator will determine the amount of grant and bond a person is eligible for, and the approximate value of future payments.
