Will you join us to reinforce to the federal government the importance of accessibility and inclusion?
Recently, in partnership with Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA, CIJA brought a delegation of Jewish federations, service agencies, and community volunteers to Parliament Hill for the first ever lobby day on disabilities and inclusion. Reena is proud to have been a member of the delegation for this historic event!
The group, comprised of representatives from Vancouver, Calgary, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, raised a number of important issues with elected officials from the Liberal, Conservative and New Democratic Parties. Reena was involved in the planning of the event, and was present at Parliament to advocate on behalf of the individuals we serve through our employment and housing programs, and to lend our support to others in the community.
As February’s Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month comes to a close, the federal government’s consultation on national disabilities legislation is also nearing its conclusion.
We need your help to reinforce the importance of accessibility and inclusion with the Minister responsible for disabilities.
