United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities


 
 
What does the International Day of Persons with Disabilities mean to people around the world? 

The annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. This year, March of Dimes Canada is working with disability agencies across Canada to conduct the largest-ever national consultations on developing new accessibility legislation.
