The Canadian Accessibility Network is pleased to share the following collection of resources with individuals, organizations, businesses, and communities working to advance accessibility across Canada.

CAN Language Guide

The CAN Language Guide establishes the use of consistent, inclusive language for all CAN communications and sets a standard for CAN that both acknowledges the context of the language we use and honours the diverse and intersectional identities of all people. The Guide is a living document and will be updated regularly to reflect how language is constantly evolving.

Disability confident employers know the value of employing people with disabilities, are aware of the barriers that individuals with disabilities face and use inclusive practices throughout the entire employment process. This resource includes various toolkits, guides, training sessions, and workshops offered by CAN Collaborators that employers can utilize to increase their disability confidence.
