ADVANCING THE INCLUSION OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Advancing the Inclusion of People with Disabilities is the annual report on the government's progress on disability issues. It covers more than 50 programs and initiatives that some 30 federal departments and agencies deliver to facilitate the participation of people with disabilities(PWD's) in major dimensions of Canadian society.

The participation of people with disabilities (PWD's) can no longer continue to be a matter of rhetoric. In the context of increasing global competition, a predominantly knowledge-based economy, emerging labour shortages, and an aging population, it is becoming evident that the participation of all people with different abilities is increasingly essential for the individual and collective well-being of our society.
