Employment of Canada's Disabled - Veterans and Others. Part 1: Basic Considerations

The first of a series, this booklet produced by the Department of Veterans Affairs with assistance from the Ministry of Labour, aimed to "foster an understanding of the question of physical disablement" as Canadian service personnel returned from overseas. Many disabled veterans faced adverse conditions when they attempted to return to civilian work. This booklet provided readers (and potential employers) with a different framework with which to approach the integration of disabled veterans into working spaces by applying "good common sense, understanding and intelligence" in changes needed for their safe employment. This petition to supply sound job placements for disabled Canadian veterans was seen as one of the many  ways in which the country could give back to those who had sacrificed so much during the Second World War.
