Few business owners have hired person with disability: Survey

TORONTO — More than one-half of small business owners have never hired someone with a disability, according to a survey by BMO Bank of Montreal. The main reason? They don’t know how to recruit them, found the survey of 500 people. Three-quarters (77 per cent) of small business owners who have hired people with a disability said they either met (62 per cent) or exceeded (15 per cent) their expectations.
