Creating a world without barriers
More than 6.2 million Canadians have some form of a disability, and the numbers are growing.
People with disabilities still face social and physical barriers that stop them from being a part of their communities.
While we’ve made great strides towards creating an accessible and inclusive world, there’s still more work to be done.
Join us on our journey.
“I honestly believe that my best work is in front, not behind me.
I am driven by a deep passion and need to make a difference and leave this world a little better than when I arrived.
That's what keeps me going.”
