The number of Canadians with hearing, mobility and vision challenges increases every year. It’s predicted that by 2036, 1 in 5 Canadians will identify as having a disability. While we’ve made great strides to make our country accessible for everyone, there’s still a lot of work we need to do. 

Visit pushforaccess.ca and show your support for National AccessAbility Week and an accessible Canada by joining the online community of access supporters. Spread awareness and inspire others by sharing your support on social media.

Also attached are suggested social media posts and web/email copy we hope you’ll use to promote the #pushforaccess initiative.
