What a great way to link two (2) equally important dates together into one fundraising event.
National AccessAbility Week is an opportunity to:
celebrate the valuable contributions and leadership of Canadians with disabilities
highlight the work of people, organizations and communities that are removing barriers
reflect on ongoing efforts to become a better, more accessible, more inclusive Canada
This year, National AccessAbility Week runs from May 28 - June 3, 2023.
Independent Living Across Canada Day is marked by a philosophy which enables people with disabilities to have access to resources which ensure that individuals have the right to examine options, to make choices, to assume responsibility to take risks and, finally, the right to make mistakes. In short, Independent Living recognizes that people with disabilities have the same capacity to manage individual decisions as anyone else in Canadian society. Independent Living Across Canada Day is celebrated on the 1st Monday of June. This year, Independent Living Across Canada Day is June 5, 2023.
Our 3rd Annual Motional Challenge celebrates all Canadians and the promotion of inclusion for Canadians with disabilities.

DATE: May 15 – June 5, 2023
