Forward Together: Accessibility and Inclusion for All.

The Accessible Canada Directorate of Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is invites you to attend the third annual Canadian Congress on Disability Inclusion (CCDI) taking place on May 23, 2024. The theme for the event is Forward Together: Accessibility and Inclusion for All.

What is CCDI?

  • CCDI 2024 is a virtual, interactive, and inclusive event and is free and open to the public.
  • Launched in 2022, CCDI is an annual milestone event that kick-starts National AccessAbility Week (NAAW) celebrations across Canada.
  • The event provides an opportunity to bring together persons with disabilities, disability organizations, public and private sector organizations, employers, innovators and thought leaders to exchange ideas and ground-breaking insights to help shape accessible and inclusively designed communities and workplaces across Canada.
  • CCDI 2022 and 2023 generated significant interest with more than 5,000 registrants.
 

This year CCDI will mark an important milestone as the event coincides with the 5th year of the coming into force of the Accessible Canada Act. The event will feature three panel discussions, exploring progress to date on the implementation of the Act as well as the two priority areas of the ‘built environment’ and ‘employment’.

To ensure everyone has an opportunity to attend and participate, the event will be as accessible as possible. That is why it will take place over Zoom, which is compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.1, Level AA. The event will provide English, French, American Sign Language (ASL) and Langue des signes québécoise (LSQ) interpretation as well as English and French captioning. Registrants will also be able to access the event through a call-in option.

For any additional questions or inquiries, please feel free to send us an email through the CCDI Mailbox: edsc.congres.can.acc-can.congress.acc.esdc@hrsdc-rhdcc.gc.ca.
