2021 Theme: When We Include Everyone, We All Win!
Everywhere we look – in schools, in sports teams, in clubs, and even just in groups of friends – we find different people with different abilities and talents. Every person has something special and unique to contribute to the groups they belong to.
Unfortunately, there are also barriers that prevent people living with disabilities from participating. Barriers might be physical, like a building with no ramps. Barriers can also be things like social exclusion, for example, intentionally trying to stop a person who lives with a disability from joining a group or activity.
When everyone is included, our differences become a huge strength. That is why Easter Seals Canada is asking children across the country to get creative and show us their interpretation of the idea: When We Include Everyone, We All Win!
