During National AccessAbility Week and on Red Shirt Day, we work to spread awareness and education on inclusion and accessibility in our communities. We must continue year-round efforts to take action and remove barriers that Canadians with disabilities face. Doing so will help create a more accessible and inclusive Canada for people of all abilities.
Parents, teachers, disability advocates, and community members are critical resources for shaping future thought leaders and promoting awareness of accessibility and inclusion. We couldn’t do this work without you!
Check out the below resources on disability, accessibility and inclusion:
City of Calgary: Recreation Resource Directory for Persons with Disabilities lists activities throughout Calgary that are accessible, inclusive and/or adapted for people of all abilities.
