National Access Awareness Week

In 1987, Rick Hansen's Man in Motion tour brought issues of ability and access into the national spotlight. In response, National Access Awareness Week was recognized and echoes the commitment and intent of the provincial Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabiltiies Act, and related accessibilty standards.

Held during the last week of May each year, National Access Awareness Week aims to celebrate achievements made both by and for people with disabiltiies. The Town of Ajax, along with several other municipalities across Canada, annual recognize and celebrate National Access Awareness Week in their communities, in efforts to engage public accessibilty awareness, education and appreciation.
