The Access Project is an innovative approach to crisis recovery, designed to embed equity in the development of strategies and solutions to support the needs of all Canadians.
The Access Project actively engages persons with disabilities, those with lived experience and experts to identify immediate and emerging needs, while also supporting the co-creation and production of strategies designed to meet these needs.
While designed to respond to the critical solutions gap during crises, the data collected through various sources, and the tools and resources established by the Access Project are intended to become part of the critical infrastructure available to support communities in becoming more accessible and inclusive for people of all abilities.
