Let’s Celebrate Diversity & Embrace Inclusion

July is Disability Pride Month! What started in the United States in 1990 has become a global movement of empowerment and visibility for those with disabilities.


What is Disability Pride?

Disability Pride means accepting and honouring each person’s uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. Disability Pride Month helps remove barriers to access and the stigma against people with disabilities.

During Disability Pride Month, disability community members and advocates take the opportunity to share the barriers they face in our society, how they have found adaptive solutions to overcome them, and what they need from community members to increase acceptance, accessibility and inclusion.


What is Disability?

Disabilities can be visible, like someone with a wheelchair or with a service animal, but they can be invisible as well, like the one in five Canadians who experience mental illness.

According to the World Health Organization, disability refers to the interaction between individuals with a health condition (e.g. cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and depression) and personal and environmental factors (e.g. negative attitudes, inaccessible transportation and public buildings, and limited social supports). This definition places the responsibility on society to accommodate those with differing abilities, recognizing the unique skills, experiences and opportunities those with disabilities have to make our communities more inclusive.
