Canadians answer question:
Accessibility in Canada to me means respecting that everyone has different abilities.

We all have access to the same services and programs without them necessarily being considered special.

Now I realize that in Canada there are people with disabilities who stay at home because that’s what they know.

Canadian communicates through American Sign Language:
Understanding accessibility needs for wheelchairs, everything. Canada-wide we need to advocate and support more.

The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Status of Women
An accessible Canada means to me that anyone who wants to participate has the opportunity and access to do so in the fullest way.

Everybody is unique in their own way. They can do it. You just have to give them the opportunity.

Canadian communicates through American Sign Language:
Accessibility for us would mean the official recognition of sign language.

The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
It’s a country where everybody feels fully inclusive and where all possibilities are within reach by all.

Canadian answer question:
Whether they be in a chair, whether they have a cane, whether they have no vision —whatever their special abilities are, they deserve a right to be part of Canada’s future.
