Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc. has joined with 27 other not-for-profit organizations to form the Canadian Access and Inclusion Project. Our purpose is to listen to Canadians with disabilities to learn more about barriers and solutions, and together to present recommendations for solutions directly to Minister Qualtrough. You can learn more about the Canadian Access and Inclusion Project and the Government of Canada’s goals at our project website www.include-me.ca .
Imagine a Canada where it is easy to get around. You can hop on a bus; grab a coffee; flag down a cab; get to work on time; meet friends in the evening for dinner, and zip off on the weekend for a last-minute get away. It’s a Canada where you have a job that matches your skills. You can get an education that matches your dreams, and you have an income that supports your independence. You feel included and valued by your community and you can easily communicate with your neighbours.
Chances are, if you are a person with a disability, these scenarios are not that easy.
- But why not? What are the barriers getting in your way?
- And what solutions can you offer?
- We invite you to tell us!
