International Day of Persons with Disabilities

international dayof persons with disabilities

Every year on December 3rd, people around the world celebrate contributions of people with disabilities. First declared by the United Nations in 1992, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) draws attention to the many ways in which those with disabilities enrich our communities.

Many people with disabilities have so much to contribute to our communities. We support people with disabilities through a variety of programs and services; learn more at calgary.ca/accessibility.

Thank you to everyone who attended our 2016 celebration on Dec 2. Read about the event and the 2016 awards winners.
