Mark Wafer is the owner of six Tim Horton’s restaurants in Toronto. Over the past 22 years Mark and his wife Valarie have hired over 150 people with disabilities to fill meaningful and competitively-paid positions in all areas of the operations, from entry-level to logistics, production, and management. They currently employ 46 people with disabilities in a workforce of 250. Mark believes there is a clear business case for inclusive employment.
