About The Event
Disability Inclusion: From Possibilities to Practice
In 2022, Employment and Social Development Canada established the Canadian Congress on Disability Inclusion (CCDI) as the Government of Canada’s annual milestone event to kick-start National AccessAbility Week (NAAW) celebrations.
CCDI 2023 is the second iteration of this virtual, interactive, and inclusive event. The virtual event provides an opportunity to bring people together to exchange ideas and groundbreaking insights to help shape accessible and inclusively designed communities and workplaces across Canada.
CCDI 2023 is free and open to the public.
