Forward Together: Accessibility and Inclusion for All

May 26 to June 1, 2024, is National Accessibility Week in Canada.

This year, the theme for National AccessAbility Week is “Forward Together: Accessibility and Inclusion for All,” emphasizing the need for collective efforts to create a barrier-free Canada. Our country’s strength lies in the diversity of its people—all its people—and we can all contribute to this vision.
