Wishing You An Inclusive and Accessible New Year

Tis the season of giving and CCD is asking you to consider our organization as you make your holiday donations. 

CCD has worked for almost 35 years to build a more inclusive and accessible Canada.  Our work has had significant results.   Through the hard work of CCD volunteers and staff, in partnership with others, we have made transportation systems more accessible, elections more barrier free, students have better access to education and jobs, human rights have been expanded through court interventions, the Registered Disability Savings Plan and tax measures have put more dollars in  people’s pockets, new data is being generated on who Canadians with disabilities are, and we have made clear the aspirations of Canadians with disabilities in foundational documents like the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Much has been done but much remains to be done.  Poverty, unemployment, and lack of supports remain.  Sadly new barriers are being created.   Going forward CCD will have less support from the Government of Canada and we must find other ways to support our mandate to improve the status of Canadians with disabilities. If you would like to help CCD in its ongoing work you can make a donation through Canada Helps or send a cheque to CCD at the address below.    CCD is a charitable organization and will issue receipts for all donations. 

The link below will take you to the Canada Helps link to CCD.

To the myriad of volunteers and allies who have helped in our work CCD says thank you and wishes you a joyous and happy new year.

Together we can build a more accessible and inclusive Canada.  Your support is appreciated.
