A quarterly newsletter from CCD.
Individuals cannot pursue their personal goals without access to transportation. Since its founding in 1976, CCD has been working to remove obstacles to the mobility of persons with disabilities from the modes of transportation within federal jurisdiction—air, rail, inter-provincial bus, and marine. CCD seeks the adoption of enforceable accessibility regulations for these modes.
CCD's Transportation Committee monitors the services provided by transportation carriers, contributes to legislative reform, shares knowledge on access with researchers, challenges discriminatory transportation practices in the courts.
