All together now
There are a lot of people and organizations that make it their business to make life more inclusive and equitable in this province. The need for improved accessibility is great - and so is the task ahead. But when all sectors work together - government, business, nonprofits, community - things move along faster, more efficiently, more effectively. Which is exactly the movement we need.

Accessibility in the Media
The way that people with disabilities are portrayed in the news and entertainment media is vitally important. A positive and accurate reflection of children and adults with disabilities directly influences societal perceptions and, in turn, attitudes, behaviour and opportunities. Media are in a strong position to increase representation and awareness of accessibility and other issues relating to living with a disability in Ontario, and we applaud those who use that position for good. We applaud those who use that position for good and want journalists to know we are here to help.
