Virtual Ambassador Presentations
Established in 2002, the Rick Hansen Foundation Ambassador Program helps create meaningful dialogue about disability, accessibility and inclusion by providing free presentations from a diverse group of people with mobility, vision and hearing disabilities to schools and communities all across Canada.
While we are currently not visiting schools in person, our Ambassadors are currently providing weekly interactive, virtual Ambassador presentations. Register to attend the next virtual presentation to hear their stories and learn about the importance of access and inclusion, all from home.
