Message from the Governor General on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of Easter Seals Canada

Since its foundation in 1922, Easter Seals Canada has been removing barriers and advocating for a more inclusive society for children and adults with disabilities.

Focused on caring and compassion, Easter Seals Canada has remained committed to enhancing the quality of life, well-being and independence of its clients, adapting to their needs and those of our communities from coast to coast. Over the last century, their critical work has improved our country as a whole and helped foster a stronger, more accessible Canada.

This would not have been possible without the Easter Seals’ dedicated staff, enthusiastic volunteers and supportive partners. Thanks to their remarkable contributions, Canadians have access to essential services and programs that help them live their lives to the fullest.

Congratulations to everyone celebrating this milestone. I wish you the very best as you celebrate the past and look to the future.

(Signed)
Mary Simon

Message de la gouverneure générale à l’occasion du 100e anniversaire de Timbres de Pâques Canada

Depuis sa fondation en 1922, la Société du timbre de Pâques du Canada oeuvre à éliminer les obstacles et milite en faveur d’une société plus inclusive pour les enfants et les adultes vivant avec un handicap.

Par son approche axée sur la bienveillance et la compassion, Timbres de Pâques Canada demeure engagée à améliorer la qualité de vie et le mieux-être de ses clients, et de favoriser leur indépendance en s’adaptant à leurs besoins et à ceux de nos communautés d’un océan à l’autre. Au cours du siècle dernier, leur travail essentiel a permis de faire évoluer notre pays dans son ensemble et de contribuer à un Canada plus fort et plus accessible.

Tout cela n’aurait pas été possible sans le personnel dévoué, les bénévoles enthousiastes et les partenaires qui soutiennent le programme des Timbres de Pâques. Grâce à leurs remarquables contributions, les Canadiens et Canadiennes ont accès à des services et à des programmes essentiels qui les aident à vivre leur vie pleinement.

Félicitations à tous ceux et celles qui célèbrent cette étape importante. Je vous offre mes meilleurs souhaits, alors que vous célébrez le passé et vous tournez vers l’avenir.
