Canada's next census will be conducted in May 2016.

According to the United Nations, there are one billion people with disabilities in the world, more than half of which are women, making them the largest minority group on the planet. And yet this group remains one of the poorest and most vulnerable.

However, vulnerability to violence and abuse remains one of the biggest challenges facing women with disabilities. Studies have shown that 40% to 60% of women with disabilities will experience some form of violence in their lives. And women are less likely to report because they may not be aware of available service or may have trouble making c…

The Strategy and Planning Meeting will describe where we came from, what worked and what didn?t, and where we?re going to; from its beginning in the U.S. to how social media can make our message heard.  A panel of experts will talk about the Canadian movement thus far, then interactive workshops will allow participants to brainstorm future strategies.

Considérant que la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme, adoptée le 10 décembre 1948, est l'idéal commun que doivent atteindre tous les peuples et toutes les nations, l'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies a proclamé le 10 décembre Journée des droits de l'homme (résolution 423 (V) PDF du 4 décembre 1950).

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD)
sam 15 Jui 2013 - sam 15 Jui 2013

The global population of people aged 60 years and older will more than double, from 542 million in 1995 to about 1.2 billion in 2025. Around 4 to 6% of elderly people have experienced some form of maltreatment at home. Elder maltreatment can lead to serious physical injuries and long-term psychological consequences. The incidence of abuse towards older people is predicted to increase as many countries are experiencing rapidly ageing populations. Elder abuse is a global social issue which affects the health and human rights of millions of older persons around the world, and an issue which deserves the attention of the international community. The United Nations General Assembly, in its resolution 66/127, designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. It represents the one day…

Preventing More Histories of Violence
ven 31 Mai 2013 - ven 31 Mai 2013

In 1993, Statistics Canada reported that one in two women will experience physical or sexual violence. In 2006, they reported that young people, especially girls, are at highest risk of sexual assault. But is this inevitable? Violence begets violence, but we don't have to simply accept it as our future. When people come together with a common violence prevention goal, we can help change the course of history and stop violence against women and youth before it happens. "Preventing More Histories of Violence" is our chance to help turn the tide of violence against women and youth. Join us at the City of Toronto Archives as we reflect on our past and envision a violence-free future in celebration of the 2013 May Be Me Campaign. Enjoy great food and entertainment and show off your "purp…

Ontario National Access Awareness Week
lun 27 Mai 2013 - lun 27 Mai 2013

Better accessibility is about more than placing a few disabled parking spots near the door to the mall. More than sticking a wheelchair ramp at the side door of your restaurant. More than providing signs in Braille on elevator buttons. True accessibility is about more than making a token effort. It requires us all to take a good, hard look at our homes, workplaces, public areas and infrastructure, and ask ourselves if they are truly open and welcoming to every Ontarian.

Daffodil Day

As part of the annual Daffodil Month activities, the Canadian Cancer Society has designated April 27, 2013 as Daffodil Day.

For example: Tell a loved one or friend with cancer that you are thinking of them; let them know about the Society?s information and support programs. Do something special for someone you know with cancer (for example, make a meal, do an errand, babysit).  Talk with your provincial or local politicians about the importance of fighting back against cancer and tell them how they ca…
