You Can Help Make Manitoba Barrier-Free

Everyone can help to make Manitoba barrier-free. Indeed, thousands of Manitobans have already have. That's the only reason we have the landmark Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA). And this act did not just squeak though in December 2013 - it had all-party support and was passed through an unanimous vote in the Legislature. 

Now we need to build on this success to ensure the timely and effective implementation of the AMA. It's one thing to have a new law. It's quite another thing to make sure that this landmark Act results in timely and game changing action. 

Here's two ways you can help right away:

  • Please click here to endorse the call for the timely and effective implementation of this legislation (as an individual or as an organization).
  • Please click here to subscribe to Barrier-Free Manitoba's e-mail list to keep track of what is happening.

Perhaps the most important way you can help is by participating in Barrier-Free Manitoba's campaigns to spread the word and to make sure politicians from all parties and others who hold a lot of power in our lives know how important barrier removal is to persons with disabilities. We'll be posting information on these campaigns on this web site so visit it frequently.

As Margart Mead, the US cultural anthropologist, said:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Get engaged. Join the thousands (yes, our group is not so small) of thoughtful Manitobans with and without disabilities who have already made thier voice heard through letters, post cards and calls to the Premier, The Minister Responsible for Persons with Disabilities and their MLAs.
