Celebrated annually on the first Saturday in June, Access Awareness Day is a comprehensive campaign to raise awareness about disability, accessibility, and social inclusion.

Access Awareness Day has been made possible because of dedicated and inspired individuals who understand the importance of social inclusion; the recognition that both the right and the opportunity to participate in all aspects of human life enable individuals and communities to celebrate their diversity and recognize their responsibilities.

This year the Comox Valley Accessibility Committee would like to celebrate Access Awareness Day 2018 and you can help. Anyone willing to volunteer some time to expand our activities, it would be a great help. Just cllck on the contact button to get started, any contribution in any form is welcome. Access Awareness Day June 2, 2018, get involved!

Access Awareness Day is ultimately about more than just one day a year. It is a call to respond creatively and purposefully to build a society where barriers to inclusion are removed, and to ensure the independence, self-esteem, dignity, and security of all citizens.
