President, Megleen, operating as Tim Hortons
Mr. Wafer is the President of Megleen and owner of six Tim Hortons restaurants in Toronto, Canada. For more than 20 years, he has employed people with disabilities in meaningful, competitively paid positions. Born deaf, Mr. Wafer speaks publically locally, nationally and internationally from firsthand experience about the economic and business case advantages of an inclusive workforce. A peer to peer initiative he created resulted in the employment of more than 1,000 disabled individuals in six years. Recognizing the true worth of having a job and bringing home a paycheck, Mr. Wafer devotes his time to working with corporations, service sector employees and governments to change the attitude and mindset of society towards people with disabilities so they, too, can contribute to our communities and live a full life.
