International Day of Persons with Disabilities
The United Nations recognizes International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) each year on December 3rd. The intent of this day is to increase awareness of diverse abilities and promote inclusion for Albertans with disabilities.
Council seeks opportunities to promote IDPD in Alberta. Support and some funding is available to help organizing committees hold IDPD events in their communities. Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities Awards are often presented at these events.
More information about IDPD is available on the United Nations’ website.
