Hosted by Pan-Canadian Disability Coalition

For the first time, the disability community will be hosting a federal election debate on disability issues. Canadians with disabilities are far too often an afterthought of politicians and government. During the last federal election, no question was asked during the leaders debates about persons with disabilities or about creating a more accessible Canada. As a result, the community has taken it upon themselves to host a national and accessible debate, focused exclusively on people with disabilities.

A coalition of over 25 disability organizations are calling on the major political parties to attend a national election debate on disability issues. Organized by the Pan-Canadian Disability Coalition on September 7, this debate will give the major political parties the opportunity to share their vision and platform for the nearly 6.2 million Canadians with disabilities.
