Many Canadians with serious mental illness are unemployed because of prejudice, and it costs the economy about 50-billion dollars a year.
A report prepared for the Mental Health Commission of Canada says 90 percent of those with serious mental health issues are out of work mainly due to prejudice against them.
The reports says many of these people have training and skills, and it recommends that all sectors of the economy collaborate to find them jobs.
