2013 Events Calendar
The Province of Manitoba has proclaimed June 2 to 8, 2013, Manitoba Access Awareness Week (MAAW). MAAW raises awareness of the barriers people with disabilities face that impact their full participation in society and promotes the removal of these barriers. We do this by celebrating people with disabilities, organizations and businesses that are providing leadership in making Manitoba a more inclusive society. For more information about MAAW and Manitoba’s disability organizations, come visit us in the Foyer of the Legislative Building throughout MAAW.
Disability accommodations available, upon request.
