TORONTO - Today, Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, issued the following statement:

"Each year on December 3, we recognize the United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities to bring awareness to the issues that impact people with disabilities and highlight some of the ways we are creating a more accessible and inclusive Ontario.

Ontario is continuing to build an accessible province that supports the well-being and inclusion of people with disabilities and older Ontarians, including increasing the participation of people with disabilities in the workforce. Our actions include:

When communities and businesses are more accessible, everyone benefits. On behalf of our government, I would like to thank all our partners in the disability community, businesses and not-for-profit organizations for their work each and every day to help make Ontario more inclusive and accessible for all. I encourage all Ontarians to learn what you can do to increase accessibility in your community."
