Canada National AccessAbility Week, May 28 to June 3

National AccessAbility Week will celebrate, highlight and promote inclusion and accessibility in our communities and workplaces across the country. We have made great strides in promoting inclusion for Canadians with disabilities, but there is still much work to do. We need to change the way we think, talk and act about barriers to participation and accessibility and we need to do it right from the start, not as an afterthought. An inclusive Canada is one where all Canadians can participate and have an equal opportunity to succeed in their workplaces and communities.
