Hey Kids,

Do you agree that it is important  to treat everyone equally, including children  who are living with a physical or invisible disability, and that each of us have a responsibility to help remove any obstacles and barriers that prevent them from taking part in activities or moving freely in the community?

Show us your vision and dream for “An Inclusive and Accessible Canada for Everybody” by taking part in our Art Contest!


  • The Easter Seals Children’s Art Contest is open to all children in Canada between the ages of 6 to 14 years old

  • The contest closes on June 7, 2020.

  • The theme for this year’s contest is “An Inclusive and Accessible Canada for Everybody.”

  • It is free to take part in this contest. There is NO COST to participate.
