Employment and income experiences for persons with disabilities often differ from persons without disabilities. Barriers to accessibility within these areas often lead to lower employment rates and decreased income levels for persons with disabilities, in relation to persons without disabilities.

Analysis based on data from the 2019 Canadian Income Survey (CIS) establishes a baseline for the disability pay gap which coincides with the implementation of the Accessible Canada Act (ACA). Furthermore, this fact sheet examines possible contributing factors for pay differences between persons with and without disabilities, including sociodemographic and occupational characteristics and disability type.
