Indigenous Disability Awareness Month
Date(s) - Nov 01, 2021 - Nov 30, 2021
November is Indigenous Disability Awareness Month!
Indigenous people in Canada experience a disability rate significantly higher than that of the general population. This annual awareness campaign calls attention to the daily barriers Indigenous peoples with disabilities and their families face. And it celebrates the achievements of Indigenous peoples living with disabilities and recognizes their significant and valuable social, economic, and cultural contributions.
Learn more about the awareness campaign through its founding organization, the British Columbia Aboriginal Network on Disability Society.
