Making it Happen: From Intention to Action

Carleton University, with support from the Province of Ontario and the City of Ottawa, is holding a three-day International Summit on Accessibility in July 2014 at the Ottawa Convention Centre.

It is the first international conference to promote access and inclusion for persons with disabilities in all aspects of life.

With the major theme of Making it Happen - From Intention to Action, the summit will feature experts from around the world, providing a key opportunity for service organizations, governments, the post-secondary sector, hospitals, and others who want to review best practices and create action.

In particular, the conference will highlight:

  • Innovative approaches to accessibility.

  • The role of technology in contributing to accessibility for persons with disabilities.

  • The concepts and collaborations needed to create accessible communities.

Throughout these themes, a special emphasis will be placed on employment. Also included will be an Avenue of Possibilities - an exhibit featuring some of the best accessibility ideas from around the world. Contact us if you would like to be featured.
