Community Events

National AccessAbility Week

May 28 – June 3, 2023

National AccessAbility Week is a time for Canadians to promote inclusion and accessibility. It is a time to recognize the efforts of individuals, communities and workplaces who are actively removing barriers to give Canadians of all abilities a better chance to succeed.

By recognizing the valuable contributions of persons with disabilities, we can begin to create a country that is fully accessible and inclusive.

Easter Seals Alberta supports all efforts to improve accessibility in Alberta for people with disabilities and medical conditions. Together with our supporters, we strive to improve accessibility by helping Albertans get the equipment they need to access their homes and community and be fully included in society.
