National AccessAbility Week (NAAW) takes place from May 30 to June 5, 2021.
We join others in celebrating:
- the valuable contributions of Canadians with disabilities
- the accomplishments of individuals, communities and workplaces to remove barriers to accessibility and inclusion, and
- the ongoing work we all have to do to counter discrimination against persons with disabilities and promote a culture of inclusion.
When barriers are removed, Canadians with disabilities are able to participate fully in society and workplaces. This helps our communities thrive and our economy prosper, so all Canadians benefit.
This year’s theme “Disability Inclusion 2021: Leaving No One Behind” is in line with the Government of Canada’s plan to build back better. It expands on the disability-inclusive approach, initiatives and measures the Government has taken throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is only by working together that we will achieve a truly accessible and inclusive Canada that leaves no one behind.
