Have you heard of People in Motion?
This year marked the 25th anniversary of People in Motion – Canada's largest disability exhibition. The event was held in Toronto on May 29-30.
If you attended, you may have spotted a booth with representatives from the Canadian Transportation Agency. We were there to share our expertise in accessible transportation and distribute the Agency's accessibility-related publications like Take Charge of Your Travel and Carriage of Mobility Aids Onboard Planes, Trains and Ferries.
Although there were plenty of fun activities – para archery, sitting volleyball or ballroom dance, to name a few – many people were excited to learn about the accommodation measures that ensure equal access to transportation services for travellers with disabilities.
We hope we inspired some travel plans and we're looking forward to attending People in Motion again next year.
