Government of Canada releases report from the Building an Inclusive Canada: National Disability Summit
“Our government is committed to working toward building an inclusive Canada. Hosting this summit was a very important step to keep this important national conversation going. I am grateful that so many shared their thoughts, views and ideas. Canadians value inclusiveness, and our government is ensuring persons with disabilities in Canada have equal opportunities to participate in society and realize their full potential.”
– The Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility
Approximately one in five Canadians—or about 6.2 million people aged 15 and over—report having a disability that limits them in their daily activities.
The Accessible Canada Act was developed following the most inclusive and accessible consultations with the disability community in our country’s history. More than 6,000 Canadians and 100 accessibility organizations shared their views and ideas about an accessible Canada.
