The CAPE six-month program is targeted at professionals with disabilities who are early in their careers and who have not yet worked at the CBC. The program helps eliminate barriers to employment, showcases the talents of this traditionally underrepresented group and generates more discussion, learning and content related to disability, accessibility and inclusion.

CBC is pleased once again to launch the CAPE program (CBC Abilicrew Placements for Excellence). Now in its fifth year, CAPE aims to kick-start the careers of disabled people*.

This six-month paid placement program is targeted at professionals with disabilities who are early in their careers and who have not yet worked at the CBC.
