Depression is a severe mood disorder that affects more than 5% of Canadians. It’s associated with ongoing and persistent feelings of sadness or loss of interest. Major depressive disorder, also known as “depression,” can impact a person’s ability to work, have healthy relationships, and live a happy life.
In Ontario, mental health disorders are the most common long-term disability claims. Because “depression” is an invisible disability, many employers do not understand the severity of this condition and its effects on a worker. Disabled workers have rights in Ontario.
