The year 2006 marks two very significant anniversaries for the disability community:
- 25th anniversary for both the International Year of the Disabled and the first Parliamentary report on disability, Obstacles
- 10th anniversary of the Scott Task Force Report, Equal Citizenship for Canadians with Disabilities: The Will to Act.
A National Campaign is being designed to celebrate these past events and build toward a Forum in Ottawa on November 2, 2006. Building an Inclusive and Accessible Canada will bring together people from across Canada, national, provincial and local disability groups and civil society organizations to participate in this unique and historic campaign.
The campaign website, www.endexclusion.ca will connect you and/or your organization to the most up to date information about the campaign. The website will include the stories submitted, updates on the November 2 Forum on Parliament Hill, the Declaration and growing list of organizations across Canada, partnering in solidarity.
