Minister Duncan launches National AccessAbility Week 2018

GATINEAU, QC, May 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, today issued the following statement:

"I am proud to launch the second annual National AccessAbility Week, which is taking place from May 27 to June 2, 2018. The week provides a great opportunity to celebrate, highlight and promote inclusion and accessibility in communities and workplaces across the country. This is a time to showcase the efforts that are being made by all to remove barriers so that people with disabilities can fully participate in our economy and society.

As a leader, we will be introducing accessibility legislation that will help eliminate barriers that people with disabilities continue to face in sectors under federal jurisdiction.

I encourage everyone to join in the celebrations. Find out more about the events taking place in your communities during the week and how you can participate and help spread the word on social media. I invite you to visit the National AccessAbility Week website for more information.  

During National AccessAbility Week 2018, let's take time to highlight the valuable contributions that Canadians with visible and invisible disabilities make to our great country.

Canada is at its best and all of society benefits when everyone is included."
