    International Day of Persons with Disabilities

    Around the world, one billion persons with disabilities face physical, social, economic and attitudinal barriers that exclude them from participating fully and effectively as equal members of society. They are disproportionately represented among the world’s poorest, and lack equal access to basic resources, such as education, employment, healthcare and social and legal support systems. In spite of this situation, disability has remained largely invisible in the mainstream development agenda and its processes. In many parts of the world today, lack of awareness and understanding of accessibility as a cross-cutting development issue remains an obstacle to the achievement of progress and development through the Millennium Development Goals, as well as other internationally agreed outcomes for all.

    Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.

    International Day of Pink

    April 8th marks the International Day of Pink. It is a day where communities across the country, and across the world, can unite to celebrate diversity and raise awareness to stop homophobic, transphobic, and all forms of bullying.

    The International Day of Pink began in Nova Scotia when two heterosexual high school students witnessed a gay student wearing a pink shirt being bullied. The two students intervened, but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic, and transphobic bullying. They decided to purchase pink shirts of their own, and later, invited everyone in the school to wear pink in solidarity.

    The message was clear: anyone can bully, any can be victimized by bullying, but together we can stop it.

    Women's History Month

    October is Women’s History Month in Canada! It’s a time for Canadians to celebrate the achievements of women and girls throughout our history and recognize the trailblazing women who have shaped our country and way of life.

    Make your mark
    When women and girls bring their passion, energy and talents to everything they do, there is no stopping them!

    Looking back over the past 150 years since Confederation, countless women have done exactly that: harnessed their power, found their voice, and claimed their place in our country’s proud history.

    Because of their efforts and those of the many women who have followed in their footsteps, we’ve made amazing strides toward gender equality and women’s empowerment over the past 150 years. But there is still more work to do: barriers still exist, and sexism and discrimination continue to impact and shape the lives of too many Canadians.

    Change is possible, but we can’t do it alone.

    As we look to the future, we must lift each other up so that everyone has the chance to claim their place and reach their full potential. Together, we can create a Canada where every woman and girl has the chance to let her unique power shine through and make her mark.

    #ClaimYourPlace
    Today, women, girls, men, and boys continue the quest for equality and inclusion in all areas of Canadian life.

    Honour their actions and celebrate the courageous women and girls who inspire you to #ClaimYourPlace.

    Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #ClaimYourPlace and share photos, videos and words of inspiration. Share your stories of finding your voice on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Tell the world how you #ClaimYourPlace!

    Dress Purple Day

    Every October, OACAS and Children’s Aid Societies raise awareness about how to identify and help prevent child abuse. One of the campaign’s key goals is to educate communities and key partners about how calling a Children’s Aid Society is one of the most effective ways to prevent child abuse. As part of this campaign OACAS and member CASs work closely with school boards, schools, and community partners on a provincial “DRESS PURPLE DAY.”

    YOUR MOUSTACHE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

    Trucker, regent, connoisseur or wisp – no matter the shape or style of your Mo this Movember, your face can inspire donations, conversations and real change.

    The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.

    A little facial hair goes a long way. More than just follicles on your face, your Mo is a ribbon – reminding the people in your life of the importance of men’s health.

    Men are facing a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. They are dying too young, before their time. We’re taking action and we need your help.

    This Movember, Grow your moustache for men’s health.
