Welcome to D.I.C.E. Connect, a service offered to employers by D.I.C.E. Assessment & Employment Counselling Services.

What is D.I.C.E.?

D.I.C.E. is a self assessment tool that gathers information on how disability affects the person’s work performance; how their strengths exceed these limitations; and, given the right career choice or employment goal, what workplace accommodations would help them perform tasks effectively and efficiently.

What is D.I.C.E. Connect?

D.I.C.E. Connect is a company registry that links employers with qualified candidates who are self aware, resourceful and proactive in taking responsibility for their accommodation needs.

Why D.I.C.E. Connect?

For a yearly membership fee, you would receive:

  • assistance with identifying your business needs and solutions to improve operational efficiency and cost effectiveness
  • access to a registry of screened candidates who have completed a D.I.C.E. assessment 

On June 13, 2005, the Ontario government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, which applies to all organizations in Ontario who have at least one paid employee (including full time, casual, paid apprenticeship and seasonal employment). The goal of this legislation is to make the province accessible by 2025 through accessibility standards in areas of customer service, transportation, information and communication, employment and the built environment. The Employment Accessibility Standards section of this Act requires that employers develop an Accessible Employment Policies Statement geared towards:

  • identifying, removing and preventing barriers to employment;
  • making employment policies and procedures inclusive;
  • providing accommodations at all stages of the hiring process from recruitment to job offer;
  • meeting the accommodation needs of individual employees once they are hired;
  • maintaining confidentiality of information relating to disability and accommodation needs;
  • providing alternative forms of communication when requested; and
  • providing disability awareness training to staff

The Employment Accessibility Standards will shape the recruitment practices of both public and private sector employers. D.I.C.E.Assessment & Employment Counselling Services would like to help smooth your transition to workplace accessibility enforcement through D.I.C.E. Connect. For your business, it would mean a healthy return on investment in the economy because, as working members of society, people with disabilities could buy products and services that would generate revenue for businesses.

To help meet your commitment to disability awareness training for staff, D.I.C.E. Assessment & Employment Counselling offers workshops on disability related issues such as disclosure and accommodation in the workplace.
