International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Making an accessible Canada for people with disabilities

This is the FIRST time Canada will participate in Thrive!

Accessibility in Canada is about creating communities, workplaces and services that enable everyone to participate fully in society without barriers.

We are looking for sponsors to assist us in creating an event to celebrate, please share with your contacts and businesses, and contact Travel-for-All with any questions.

Today, 3.8 million Canadians over the age of 15 (almost 14% of Canadians), identify as having a disability,

By working together with provinces and territories and the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, the Government of Canada can work to ensure equality, inclusion and full participation in society for all Canadians.

Travel-for-All, in partnership with the Ukrainian Community Centre, Wheelchair Dance Sports Association of Canada and the Canadian Assisted Travel Society has the pleasure of inviting you to Thrive Worldwide to celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Join us as we celebrate the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on December 1st. It's a day of acknowledgment of how far we've come and how much we have yet to change for people with disabilities. It's a pivotal day to celebrate inclusion and acknowledge the many organizations who support people with disabilities in various ways.

If we can normalize inclusion around the world, people with disabilities will no longer be "different" - just differently-abled.

Registration is required for administrative purposes.
