From words to action: Moving together for a Canada without barriers

You are invited to attend our third Annual Public Meeting. It will be held online on Thursday, June 1, 2023. To accommodate as many people as possible from coast to coast to coast, the meeting will run from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Registration is required.

This year’s theme is From words to action: Moving together for a Canada without barriers. Over the past year, we have taken strides toward real impacts. Please join us on June 1 to learn about how our work is taking shape.

To kick off the meeting, Paul-Claude Bérubé, the Chairperson of the Board of Directors, will talk about what we have accomplished over the last year. This will be followed by a moderated panel discussion. Three members of our technical committees will share their experiences. They will give you a glimpse of what it’s like to work with us and to develop standards. To conclude, you will learn how you can join us and contribute to our journey toward a barrier-free Canada by 2040.
