Destination Canada Accessibility Plan
Published in December 2022
Destination Canada (DC) acknowledges the difficulties persons with disabilities continue to face with accessing mainstream employment. To that end, we are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, within DC. Paramount to this work is our commitment to fostering an inclusive environment at DC where people with various abilities can bring their true potential, unparalleled skills, and unique outlooks to our workforce.
Accessibility is an ever-evolving area, and we believe this plan is a living document that should be updated over an extended horizon. Therefore, we highly encourage our audience to continue sharing their feedback through the channel of their choice. For those who have already dedicated time and effort in bringing this plan to life, your input is appreciated. Together, we look forward to dismantling the existing barriers and extending opportunities for people of all abilities.
We welcome constructive feedback that will help Destination Canada become a more accessible organization.
