Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods

Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (CAN) is committed to equity, diversity, and accessibility. CAN recognizes that people with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions have multiple intersecting identities that affect their experiences and daily life. CAN represents and honours all identities by centering decolonization and using both an intersectional lens and disability justice framework.  CAN is dedicated to education, whether community members, government, businesses, organizations, and/or communities. Our material is adjustable to new learners or more experienced audiences and delivered in a variety of ways. We deliver workshops, including: Breaking Barriers, Crip Kindness, Disability Awareness, Disability Justice, Gender + Sexuality, Imposter Syndrome, and Queer + Trans History (BC and Canada). We do presentations for conferences, speak on panels, and participate on committees for a number of issues: accessibility, academic and/or medical ableism, disability awareness, streetscapes, transportation, poverty, 2SLGBTQIA+ issues, and privileges and oppressions.  CAN does consultation work, engaging collaboratively to find creative solutions to, and educate about, barriers within communities. Projects include: accessibility, transportation, advocacy, empowerment, disability awareness, poverty, 2SLGBTQIA+ (Queer) issues, disability justice, and more.  Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods empowers people with disabilities, builds community, enables people to advocate for themselves and others, celebrates diversity, and amplifies lived experience.
