Access Awareness Week Nova Scotia takes place May 26 – June 1 this year. As a member of the Partnership for Access Awareness Nova Scotia planning committee, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission is excited to be changing the narrative for persons with disabilities by doing our part in raising awareness and acting on disability issues. The events and initiatives hosted during this week are informed by first voice using a disability lens to ensure inclusion and accessibility for everyone.

For 37 years, Nova Scotians have organized community events, press conferences, forums, concerts and lectures during Access Awareness Week to bring attention to the importance of removing barriers for people with disabilities. Through public awareness, community partnerships education and dialogue, Access Awareness Week aims to foster an environment of equal participation for persons with disabilities.
