Innovating Together: Celebrating and Driving Disability Inclusion in Canada

This virtual event provides an opportunity to bring people together to exchange ideas and ground breaking insights to help shape accessible and inclusively designed communities and workplaces across Canada.

What to Expect

The first Canadian Congress on Disability Inclusion (CCDI 2022) is more than a conference – it’s the Government of Canada’s new annual milestone event to kick-start National AccessAbility Week (NAAW) celebrations.

This virtual, interactive and inclusive event is free and open to the public.

Here is a sneak peak of what is in store:

  • Some of Canada’s most prominent disability and accessibility advocates, community members, academics, thought leaders and innovators.
  • Next-level networking to exchange ideas and build partnerships.
  • An Innovation Showcase to highlight leading edge accessible and inclusive innovative projects, products and services.
  • A Career Fair for persons with disabilities featuring some of Canada’s most diverse and inclusive employers.

Our Commitment to Accessibility
