World Population Day 2023

July 11, 2023

World Population Day reminds us that a truly inclusive Canada is one where persons with disabilities are embraced as integral members, enhancing the fabric of our diverse nation.

World Population Day, celebrated on July 11th, is an opportunity to recognize the diversity and value of every individual in society. This year, we shine a spotlight on persons with disabilities in Canada, highlighting their remarkable contributions and advocating for equal opportunities and inclusion. It is a time to celebrate their strengths, talents, and resilience, and to promote a society that embraces diversity and removes barriers that hinder their full participation.

Canada has made significant strides in fostering inclusivity for persons with disabilities, yet challenges persist. On World Population Day, we acknowledge the importance of creating accessible environments, both physical and social, that empower individuals with disabilities to live their lives to the fullest. By ensuring equitable access to education, employment, healthcare, and social services, we can enable them to thrive and contribute their unique perspectives and abilities to our communities.

On this special day, let us also recognize the incredible achievements and potential of persons with disabilities. You can read countless success stories right here on our website. Persons with disabilities in Canada embody determination, courage, and perseverance in the face of adversity. By acknowledging their accomplishments, promoting accessibility, and actively combating discrimination, we can collectively build a society where everyone, regardless of their abilities, can live a life of dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. World Population Day reminds us that a truly inclusive Canada is one where persons with disabilities are embraced as integral members, enhancing the fabric of our diverse nation.
