If you ever wished you could tell the government about the barriers we face and how we would remove them, now is your chance!
The Canadian Paraplegic Association (Manitoba) Inc. is inviting you to participate in a consultation to create recommendations for Canada's Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, in order to make Canada one of the most accessible and inclusive countries in the world. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has directed The Honourable Minister Carla Qualtrough to introduce new federal accessibility legislation to lead this substantial change in Canada. You can participate in the following ways:
Group Discussion (see below)
CPA Manitoba is hosting this consultation so that you can offer insights and solutions on the creation of new federal accessibility legislation. CPA Manitoba has joined with 28 other not-for-profit organizations to form the Canadian Access and Inclusion Project (CAIP). Our purpose is to listen to Canadians with disabilities to learn more about barriers and solutions, and together, present recommendations directly to the Honourable Minister Qualtrough.
So, it all comes back to you. What does the Canada you want to live in look like? We want you to tell us!
