People with disabilities are moving toward equality. Evidence of this progress is apparent in the community: pay phones equipped with TTYs, audible traffic signals, tactile cues on streets, ramps, curb cuts, Braille elevator buttons. CCD has helped bring about these changes.

Through CCD, people with disabilities advise, critique, intervene, liaise and partner to improve access and inclusion in Canada.

A 2004 Environics poll demonstrated that Canadian citizens support inclusion and access for persons with disabilities.

CCD has been sharing its vision of how to achieve an accessible and inclusive Canada with private and public decision-makers responsible for the key systems of society, such as the physical and cultural environment, transportation, income and benefits, employment, health and social services.
