The Coalition Leadership Group has worked on recommendations to the Government of Canada in regards to COVID, people with disabilities and disability-related organizations.

Stuff is Happening and You Should Know About It

We’ve got a few things to share with y'all.

Tomorrow – January 30th – the Canadian Association of Community Living and the Council of Canadians with Disabilities is hosting End of Life, Equality, and Disability: A national forum on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). The in-person session is sold out, but you can attend by livestream. Sign up at: https://freeman.streamme.ca/cac-ccd2020

Hey there Canadian disability-related organizations / Salut, organisations canadiennes liées aux personnes handicapées

We know that presenting issues shared among people with disabilities can influence the position of each political party. After all, together we represent about 22% of Canada's population. So, a combined effort could go a long way. In order to understand issues central to your communities, we invite you to send us two questions your organization would like to ask each political party.

Join Us in Creating an Accessible Canada

So, the Accessible Canada Act has passed and is in force. The Canadian Accessibility Standards Development Organization (CASDO) has been set up. Things are moving along. But now what are we all going to do? How do we ensure that people with disabilities continue to have a say in creating an accessible Canada?

We Did It

Congratulations to all of you. The vote in the House of Commons passed unanimously. Once Bill C-81 has Royal Assent we will have an Accessible Canada Act.
