Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD)

Workplace training received by person with a disability, status

Workplace training received refers to a job-related training received by a person when provided or paid for by his or her employer or company during a period of time. Job-related training includes activities that are pursued for the development or upgrading of skills for use in present or future employment rather than personal interest or other non-employment-related reasons. Training activities includes courses and workshops not leading to a formal education credential, or activities (programs) provided in formal systems of education leading to a formal education credential, including primary-level and secondary-level education, and postsecondary education like university and college diplomas and degrees.

Person with disability refers to a person whose daily activities are limited according to a prescribed level of difficulty with particular tasks due to a long-term condition or health problem lasting, or expected to last, for a specific period of time.

In the Canadian Survey on Disability, "Disability Screening Questions" (DSQ) are used to evaluate the presence and severity of ten (10) distinct types of disabilities related to a health problem or condition that has lasted or is expected to last for six months or more (the only exception to this is for developmental disabilities where a person is considered to be disabled if the respondent has been diagnosed with this condition). Screening questions emphasize consistency of measurement across disability types. The questions address the following ten (10) disability types: seeing, hearing, mobility, flexibility, dexterity, pain, learning, developmental, mental/psychological and memory. Respondents may report and therefore be classified as having more than one disability type.

The data for this variable are reported using the following classifications and/or lists:
