National AccessAbility Week: May 28 - June 3

National Accessibility Week, recognized each year during the last week of May, is an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities.

At the OCDSB, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and reach their full potential. We believe everyone deserves the right to an education without barriers caused by limited or no access to facilities and relevant, responsive services. The District is committed to removing barriers, whether visible or invisible, that may prevent this. National Accessibility week offers the opportunity to learn more about accessibility and to reflect on how we can make our school communities more accessible and inclusive. 

Wednesday May 31st is Red Shirt Day for Accessibility and Inclusion. This date encourages communities across the country to wear red as a visible symbol of solidarity, celebrating the accomplishments of Canadians with disabilities and showing support for individuals with disabilities and their families. All are invited to wear red on Wednesday, May 31st to show support.
