Imagine a Canada where it is easy to get around. You can hop on a bus; grab a coffee; flag down a cab; get to work on time; meet friends in the evening for dinner, and zip off on the weekend for a last-minute get away. It's a Canada where you have a job that matches your skills. You can get an education that matches your dreams, and you have an income that supports your independence. You feel included and valued by your community and you can easily communicate with your neighbours.
Chances are, if you are a person with a disability, these scenarios are not that easy.
But why not? What are the barriers getting in your way?
We want you to tell us!
The Canadian Access and Inclusion Project includes a group of 28 disability-related organizations all reaching out to people like you! We want to hear about your struggles, barriers, frustrations…
And we want to hear about your fixes, your good ideas… your solutions! We know you have them.
We are listening to people all across the country sharing their suggestions of how we can make Canada accessible and inclusive for all people!
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, The Hon. Carla Qualtrough, to make changes and develop new federal accessibility legislation.
So, it all comes back to you. What does the Canada you want to live in look like?

We look forward to you sharing your insights!
