ATC Was a Proud Sponsor of this Year’s VRA Canada Conference & Annual General Meeting in Ottawa
The Vocational Rehabilitation Association of Canada (VRA) is a national organization that represents and advocates for vocational rehabilitation professionals. Their focus is to remove barriers and help individuals return to work, or to find the best possible outcomes for employment.
Established in 1970, VRA Canada consists of members who offer specific expertise in vocational rehabilitation and disability management, as well as a broad range of expertise that spans the fields of:
- Psychology and industrial psychology
- Labour relations
- Human resources
The association is built on the foundation of knowledge and experience teamed with dignity and compassion. Their core belief is that all people should have the right and opportunity to participate in society fully and with dignity, and have the opportunity to advance their vocational and life goals.
This year’s annual conference was held at the Delta Ottawa City Centre and gave VRA members the opportunity to meet and share their knowledge with each other.
